    Criminal Justice Classes versus Work Force

    Hello... again. My question revolves around the recent threads and a broad question that is geared towards Criminal Justice degree individuals who have obtained some time with the law enforcement world.

    In deciding if one would like the work or not, do criminal justice classes give a good representation of the real workload and real world duties; or, is there a disconnect between the classroom and the workplace?

    Thank you as always!

    Academics are just that. They are not the real world. If this sort of things interests you, and obviously it does or you wouldn't have posted, try to match your college studies with some real world experience. For example, if you are interested in law enforcement, considered joining a police or sheriff's reserve unit. In fact, get as much varied volunteer experience as you can. See if you can spend a day with the 911 PSAP (Public Safety Answering Point), spend time with investigations, ride with the State Police/Highway Patrol, even stop by the local courthouse and spend the morning hearing some cases.
