Hey Nathaniel in Cleveland heights you need to have at least a four year degree to get promoted to be a civil service police officer. That is becoming the norm for most departments now a days. Officers in Cleveland Heights also have law degrees, a PhD, masters degrees and as I said four year degrees. And trisomy 21, real mature. That cop with "downs syndrome" protects your was with no questions asked. nice.

FYI, All CHPD Patrolman are required to have college degrees. Moreover, I would argue CHPD could be the most educated department in the state. Out of the 60 police officers, five (5) have Juris Doctrate degrees, one (1) is a PHD candidate, twelve (12) hold masters degrees, with the rest having college degrees. Thoughts for your puffery....

As a law-abiding, non pot-head, non ex-criminal Cleveland Heights resident, that happens to still think of the police as the good guys, thank you. Great job!

Wow you guys lie through your teeth when you want to refute a claim. It's sort of a trend these days so I'm not surprised. I did the research and you are not required to have an associate, or bachelor's degree to become a Cleveland Heights Police Officer. Completing training at the academy awards some credits that are deemed college level. This is in no way, shape, or form the equivalent of getting a four year degree. That would be sweet if doctors could get on the job training and have it count for credits. Oh wait that's called residency and by that time they already have their M.D. When I say four year degree, I'm no referring to the University of Phoenix online lol. I guess some would argue that it counts. Name one president of the United states who graduated from an online university lol. I want the police to earn four year degrees from CSU, JCU, Or Case Western Reserve Universityand then become cops. I wonder how many would make it through that training. The point I was trying to make is that the people who are becoming doctors, engineers, and lawyers would make great cops and the people who are currently cops would make great janitors. Compare the aptitude of an engineer to that of a police officer. One of them is going to fall short, I doubt it would be the engineer. I want the best and the brightest, that's what the citizens deserve. I guess in the end you get what you pay for. I'm just sayin ....

You can be a bpo (traffic officer) without a degree. can't get promoted without the degree
