~~This is a question for any police officer!~~ I want Wisconsin Police Officer's input to please
I am 17yrs old I am a senior at a Wisconsin High School. I want to become a patrol officer and a prison or jail gaurd! My plans are now to finish high school then go to Fox Valley Technical College (FVTC) and do their 2 year program where when I graduate I can go straight in to a patrol position (this college offers the police acdamey as part of the program so I won't have to go anywhere else for that). Many woman who go to this school get excepted into a department before they even finish the schooling. Is this a good plan? Should I go to a 4year college instead? Should I join some branch of the military and be a police officer there for a while then go to a department?
Thanks in advance for you input!!!!
