    THAT will serve you well if you want to run an agency

      My top two picks for this category are:
      1. Masters in Public Administration
      2. Masters in Business Administration

        ^^^^^^ I like
        I would do a Bachelors in Business Admin followed by a Masters in Public Admin.

        But a MBA wouldn't hurt either.



        But you know what is going to be the best thing to do----------Work MANY years as a grunt. Know the job inside out, promote UP THE LADDER taking enough time at each step to KNOW THAT job inside out.

        Getting your education on the streets and in the office is much more important than getting the book learning.

        Yes, you are probably going to need the sheepskin to actually get the top jobs, but you really should know the way your subordinates work

            As long as you stay in the Criminal Justice field

              It's OK but the major courses really doesn't teach you anything you don't learn in a police academy, just maybe more in-depth.

              If you want to promote up the chain you need to learn about budgets, HR stuff and all sorts of other things not covered in CJ.

              A CJ degree wouldn't be bad as long as you stay in LE, but if you get out or get hurt it won't help in another career as much.

                The search feature is a useful tool; there are about 1000 threads on this very topic. You may get a nugget or two from a CJ degree, but it limits your options. Search feature, yeah, that's it.

                  Masters Public Administration. I'm currently in a completely online program through Arkansas State University that is fully accredited and very affordable.
