I've been trying to figure out what level of education is expected for police/sheriff deputies in the area. I'm still considering applying with the local Sheriff's office when I turn 21, but I'm also sniffing around for information. Anything you've got would be helpful... What percentage of officers do you think have a 4 year degree, 2 year degree, no college? How does having/not having a degree affect promotion chances? How many LEOs have military experience? Basically, I'm about half-finished with my degree, and I'm looking at my options. Thanks in advance.
