A clean record and depending on how high in rank you would like to go; an associates degree or a bachelor's degree in either criminal justice or criminology(would help but in most cases is not mandatory.)
It's an incredible field, hope ya get there - best of luck!!
You need to have a high school diploma and then obtain an undergraduate degree. Then enroll in police academy training and you have to participate in the on job trainings. For more information you can visit http://www.wikihow.com/Become-a-Police-Officer.
