if I want to become a police officer would it be I good idea to get a degree in policing or a degree in law with criminology, as iv heard obviously the policing degree can fast track you straight into the police service, however I know a law degree can open up so many more doors including policing. Therefore, if policing doesn't work out I have other career options to pursue. Which would be ideal?

I think a law degree would be better because as you have said it would open up more doors in case you change your mind

Ah just apply to join any of the North East forces whenever they advertise vacancies then. The Job concerns itself more about who you are as a person, how you manage people and your understanding of their role in society than quals generally speaking for an entry level copper. I wouldn't bother studying policing for that reason - save studying about policing for when you actually get recruited.

Criminology could be decent if you really want to work to in justice sector - it's a gateway to becoming a probation officer if that interests you at all. Law is pretty hardcore to study, make sure your head is in it to win it if you go for that.

Just be aware though, I know a lot of law and Crim graduates who ended up with no job at the end of studies in their field. So I would plan ahead with potential conversion courses at post grad level - or studying something more in demand than being oversubscribed.
