Hi guys, I've just finished my degree and I'm thinking about joining my local police force as an officer. I'm currently in the process of becoming a special which should give me a good taste for it, however I have a few questions in the meantime... 1) Does having a good degree behind you carry much weight in terms of your career progression? 2) Roughly how many years would you need to spend in uniform before having a realistic chance of being able to specialise? 3) Once you have specialised, is it possible to move from one branch to another? Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks!
