If we expect a responsible force we should require them to be educated.

Requirements to become a Police Officer

Education, Training and Experience Required:

1. Must be at least 21 years of age.
2. Must prossess a valid Drivers License at time of employment.
3. Must be a citizen of the United States and possess a high school; diploma or the equivalent thereof.
4. Must not have been convicted of a felony crime or have pending criminal actions.
5. Must not be a current user of controlled substances.
6. Must be able to pass written and oral examinations. MMPI or related psychological examination and undergo an extensive background investigation, polygraph examination and drug screening.
7. During the first twelve (12) months of employment, which is a probationary period, must successfully complete a basic Police Academy as taught by the Council on Law Enforcement Education & Training (CLEET) and written, practical and field exercises under the direct supervision of a Field Training Officer (F.T.O.).

Wow, no wonder so many hotheads get into the force.

The Police officers are no better than the scum on the street. Most of them probably got educated in prison.

Police work is soul destroying. The type of person that wants to be a cop is usually a control freak or sadist. The career cop chose the job to harass the public. Pretty much the only good cops are the types that just took the job until something better comes along.
And I am sick of all this cop worship saying they are underpaid and how they risk their lives, etc. That is all B.S. Most cops are severely overpaid and they knew full well the conditions of the job before they chose it voluntarily. And police work is MUCH less dangerous than they want you to believe.

The first five posts are from the same moron trying to act like different people. The rest of the morons commenting here are obviously criminal pukes who are jealous of the heros who risk their lives every day so that they can be safe.

That moron most likely is a Reche Canyon resident who for years told folks he was a former officer with San Berdoo PD, even writing letters to the newspaper claiming to be a former police officer. After a meeting between CPOA and SBPOA during the CAPS campaign we learned the truth. He was never an officer-only a cadet. We can only speculate on the reason he was never hired by an agency as that info, of course, is classified. However we do know he holds a grudge against law enforcement, in particular the fine men and women of the Colton PD.

Here's the bottom line. When I started, I didn't have a degree and when I finished, I had a B.A. There wasn't too much I learned in college that would have helped me with my job. The job has to do with what you learn in the academy and life experience along with applying common sense..Also, to all the exceptional citizens putting down law enforcement on here, get a clue. "One of those uneducated bastards is now sitting in jial." Uneducated you say? How educated do you need to be to spell jail correctly?

Police are never there when you need them. Always there when you don't have your safetybelt fastened. It doesn't take a college graduate to record a crime on paper after it has already occurred rather then prevent it. So yes, overpaid. Fire fighters/ paramedics underpaid.

They're not there because they're handling stupid calls that people like you call them on. My neighbors leaves are falling on my yard just to name one call I handled. So you break the law and you gripe about someone being there to call you on it? AHH, yes you can write it down, but what do you do with it after you do that? I'm guessing you have no clue..

I feel bad for the cop who joins the force for all the right reasons only to discover there are rules of corruption that you must follow.. if you ever want to know how cops really feel about their job ask one who is retired and he's tell you the truth

I'm a retired cop. 27 years of patrol, supervisory duties, and upper management. I'm curious what these rules of corruption are that you speak of. My department was a mid to large size department, and if these rules existed I would have caught wind of them after 27 years. You mentioned asking a retired cop how the feel, or felt about their job. Well ask away. I loved my job and miss it with every inch of my heart. I miss the people I was able to help, I miss my coworkers, and yes, I even miss the conspiracy theorists like you.

Most laws are written to steal peoples money by imposing outrageous fines. Not really to protect anybody. If I get fined for a cracked windsheild, but I don't have money to fix it, how does that help make the road safer? It certainly doesn't help afford to repair my car. And that's only one example of so many stupid laws are written in without people agreeing with what the legislature is putting through. Just ask people.
So imagine what the person with a 12th grade education and an urge to enforce all this Crap people would never vote for is like,? yea I want then carrying guns and to be able to teaser people to death. I can think of plenty of things for them to stop doing if you want to get into it. I saw a cop impound an elderly woman's car even after I tried to help push it off the road and HE WOULDN'T HELP PUSH. MAYBE YOU SHOULD RAKE LEAVES. TO PROTECT AND SERVICE OURSELVES TO YOUR WALLET.

The cracked windshield gets you off the road. If you can't afford to fix it, you cwertainly can't afford the gas or insurance (do you even have insurance?) You're a toad just like the rest of them!
