    I have to agree with this... the degree is the stepping stone to the job. You can go back to school after you get hired. Too much can happen that would prevent you from getting the job. It's unlikely but what if the NYPD had a 5 year hiring freeze.. would be banging your head then.

    Take the test for NYPD when it comes up...When I was testing I tested with them in the month of June, found out I passed and then didn't hear anything from them until the following March...by that time Phoenix had already hired me

    Take all the tests that you can now. As Iowa said, the NYPD process is very long, as are many other.

    Agencies won't usually wait for you to finish college unless a college degree is required for employment.

    However, most places you get college credit for the academy anyway and you can always plan to finish up the degree part time after you graduate the academy and get off FTO and probation.

    I believe the current wait between testing and hire at the NYPD is about 3 yrs

    How should i start my career?

    Im currently a sophomore im college (CJ major) i will finish off this semester in 5 days with 59 credits and next semester with 77.. I plan on graduating next may of 2016 but i was wondering if i should take the NYPD police test this june.. If i score high and they ask for me to join the academy would i have to drop out of college? Or would they let me finish school , graduate and then join the academy?
