    I would like to join the police when I am older but I'm unsure on the route to take.

    Do I get degree and apply for a higher position straight away (I want to eventually become a Detective Inspector), join the specials to gain experience before committing to the career or do I just become a PCSO and work up the ranks?

    Any useful advice is appreciated.
