Changes of career at 18! Anyway, have a look on the met police website for example and see what types of careers and routes there are. You can then work out what interests you. You can also get some work experience I think which will help.

So I went to an apprenticeship fair at my school and I spoke to two police officers there and they told me that to become a homocide detective I need to:
1) Apply for a CKP (Certificate of Knowledge in Policing) exam which costs slightly over a grand.
2) The exam has four components (if I remember correctly) and they are maths, English, role-play and fitness.
3) If you fail one of the components then you have to retake your CKP in 6 months or more.
4) You'll be a police officer (after training which is after your CKP) for at least two years before they move your position to detective.
This is just what I have been told and what I roughly remember so some of this may be slightly incorrect or different in other places, so I'm not saying this is for definite : )
