                                     Police without degrees?

SENIOR high school graduates aspiring to become police officers might find themselves faced with a tough choice. If they want to enroll in a police academy, they will probably have to give up a much-coveted bachelor's degree.

According to a recent online post widely quoted in major news portals, police academies in China will stop offering bachelor's degrees starting this fall. Instead, they will learn from American police academies, putting more focus on professional training rather than degree-oriented academic study.

Although the Public Security Bureau claims the report is not entirely true, it did tell the Southern Metropolis Daily that reforms will be made in police education. It said that the details and time frame of the reform are still being deliberated.

Most commentators are supportive of the reform, saying it will produce better cops with more practical knowledge. Others wonder whether the quality of the students can be guaranteed if the enrollment is open to everybody. They also wonder whether the threshold will be too high if only college graduates are to be admitted.

What do you think? Should police academies stop offering college degrees?

Yes

Current police academy education is severely cut off from the reality of police work.

1. It is a well-known fact that academy graduates are finding it increasingly difficult to find jobs these days. This is partly because they are poorly trained for the job, and partly because the police academies are not well-connected to the real police system. Removing degree education from police academies and letting them focus on real police work will improve the employment situation of graduates. It will also improve the general quality of the police force.

2. By recruiting well-educated college graduates and training them properly in police work, the country's police can build a stronger, more capable service. The candidates for police cadets will be selected through a more competitive process.

No

Police officers need to be well-educated citizens, and police academies shouldn't abandon that function.

1. General education and police-specific education don't necessarily clash with each other. The current academies can improve the quality of their education by continuing to offer general education to cadets. At the same time, they can teach them more practical knowledge and skills directly related to police work. We shouldn't dismiss current police academies simply because their courses aren't practical enough.

2. Police academies in Western countries don't offer degrees because the general level of education in the West is high. In China, where higher education is not wide-spread, we still need the police academies to offer general science and humanities courses to produce intelligent, qualified police officers.
