Many professions require at least a bachelors degree. It's time to hold all police officers to that standard. In some states all that's required is a high-school diploma or a GED, this is not enough. A high-school diploma should not be sufficient qualification to wield a gun and badge! Officers everywhere should be required to obtain a bachelors degree in ethics before even being considered for a job!

This reasoning is justified because their salary in many cases is equal to or greater than other professionals working in the public sector. For example educators require at least a bachelors degree. Even park managers need a bachelors degree. In my state the starting salary for a police officer is higher than both of these other public professions. 

Now more than ever it is clear that as a nation we must expect more from our officers, and expecting them to educate themselves as many others do is completely reasonable and warranted.
