British girl, 14, wants info on how to prepare for LAPD career

Aug. 17th


i am a 14 year old female from england (u.k.).

i have always wanted to be in the police force but not english police. i was wondering what qualifications i would need to pursue my dreams of becoming a cop at the l.a.p.d? because when i go back to high school we have to pick different subjects to study.

and i need to know what age, how to move to usa etc. i am going to college/university as well because i want to study criminology. i wondered if this would help me??

please reply with information!
