Pieces of my mind

This thought just occurred to me. This may or may not be the right time for it, but I’m writing it down.

We want professional peace officers, correct? A few agencies require a bachelor’s degree to be an officer because they recognize that the time spent in college that results in a degree produces a more well-rounded person. College, generally, gives one a wider worldview, a more all-encompassing, all-embracing perspective.

What’s the problem? Not everyone can afford a college education in America. Lots of good candidates can’t afford the degree.

Solution: 1) Require the degree to be an officer 2) Make college free Problem solved. Those that want to be cops will go through college, turning them into a more “well-rounded” person, and money won’t be a barrier.
