Just wondering what GCSE's, A-Levels or any other requirements that there are to become a police detective. Thanks.

I don't think there are any official academic requirements to be in the police, but at the moment you normally need to join as a police constable, and apply for a detective post after two years. Of course you can apply for graduate programmes if you have a 2:1 in a degree, but I'm not sure whether that puts you ahead of anyone who doesn't have a degree. This all obviously applies to the UK police force, and I know the most about the entry requirements for the Met, back when I thought I'd make a good policeman.
Obviously GCSEs or A Levels such as Sociology and Psychology may help, but anything would in the police force, the majority of it seems to be using your wit.Last edited by Bonoahx; 27-03-2013 at 00:27.
