Hi I just reached the age of 16 and my whole life I have always wanted to become a police officer, and a long term goal of becoming a detective. I have noticed that you officers have said that it is near impossible to becoming a police officer in MA. I am hoping by the time I graduate from college that this will change. I am not really sure what my steps should really be. I have read the other thread about becoming a police officer but I am still alittle confused. I was hoping to live in a metropolitan area, but I do not know any areas like that that have a detective division. Could someone help me out?
