Is A Criminal Justice Degree Worth It When Becoming A Sheriff Deputy/Police Officer?

2015-11-03 06:16
I want to know what the difference between a police officer's salary who did not attend college, rather just went straight to a police academy, and a police officer who received a bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice?
Like the military, and probably every DOD job, having a degree is like a bright shiny golden star on your forehead that they cant look over. It will definetley help you out in your career, but not having one shouldn't hurt you or set you back either. I'm planning on enlisting in the USMC without one.
Taking a degree is worth it as you will go higher in the ranks faster than any regular person in law enforcement.
Better pay, too.
