    My experience is a college degree doesn't make a better cop - at all. Hell, we have Master's degree-level officer's who can barely spell their names...I have NO IDEA how they got graduate degrees. You learn real quick what they taught you in college doesn't translate into real life. You have to EARN your respect through your actions on the job. Nobody gives a s*** about your degree. The only thing it does is makes you eligible for hire in certain communities or open up some promotional opportunities, depending on what political camp you are rooting for.

    With that said I went back to college for life AFTER POLICE WORK. Having a Master's degree, at a minimum, will at least HELP get me out of any security jobs, Walmart greeter jobs, etc. I finished my M.P.A. degree in 2007 and hope to start law school in the near future when my schedule allows. Police work is a young man (or woman's) job and after age 50 I hope my uniform never sees the light of day.
