    I don't know if having a college degree really makes you a better officer. I worked with many guys/gals who were HS grads who were outstanding officers. They had excellent knowledge of the law and could take care of business when the [email protected]&$ hit the fan. The worst? A computer genius w/a Masters who while on a crack binge broke into the courthouse where he was assigned and stole a bag of drugs that were in evidence. Wound up doing 4-12 for that bit of insanity
    I never said better officers but I'm sure you will get a hell of a lot better candidates. Book smart won't get you anywhere in the streets but you need to have some imo

    • Unless they've really dumbed down the test, you would need book smarts to do well enough to be reachable for this highly competitive job. BTW, a Bachelors' was a requirement for the job decades ago. From what I understand, they did away w/ the requirement so more minorities could qualify for the position.

        That's very stupid to even say minorities can't get a bachelors and I don't mean that toward you I'm saying in general. College isn't that hard I have a few months left for my bachelors plenty of minorities in my class who all do very well

            Yes I agree also soon2retire made a good point about officers in who are natural police who know the streets sharp instinct and the ability to read people no degree can get you that it just doesn't

            • I did not say that minorities can't get a Bachelors' Degree, did I? I said "so MORE minorities could qualify for the position" I also said the requirement was dropped decades ago. (More than 30 yrs.) That was the thinking at the time

                No read it carefully that wasn't directed toward you I meant that if that statement you said is true that it's stupid nys lowered standards for minorities to get the job. standards for law enforcement should be the same across the board no matter what sex or race a person is. We bleed the same breathe the same with that being said standards should not be changed because others aren't getting the job that's how I feel about it. Soon2retire I don't think your racist at all I don't want to come off like that you give great info and you are very informative.

                    There's nothing to disagree about in my opinion. You have to bust your *** for this job right? That being said I just feel the standard should not be altered. Coopers standard is a great tool and I actually train for that standard and go harder so I can excel past what they want (personal goal) be the best at what you can do and go from there

                    • guys enough fighting like little girls!!!! no college degree means more ppl can apply and can qualify for the job... maybe if they did that for nypd and got rid of 60 college credits maybe then well have some normal cops on the street who had life exp living and growing up in the projects and would not be scared to do vertical patrols like some ppl are! thats what they should do!

                          • That scared stuff your talking about i applaud because it's so true it's not even funny we need real cops on the street. To fight these scary fights scary people you can't be that scared. We're human we all get scared its normal but how we handle stressful situations tells slot about character you couldn't be more right!!!!!!!
