    Hi i was thinking of going into the same field when i was choosing my alevels, so i picked sociology, psychology and law. They are all really interesting subjects and all have something to do with crime. I also picked these because i wanted to do a degree in criminology, which may be an option if you don't want to continue doing just law. Even though i don't want to be in the police now, this still leaves other jobs in the criminal justice system open, like now i'm thinking of a job in probation.
