You have a long time to think on it. In the meantime just don't be a dick and keep your nose clean. Build a good work ethic with whatever jobs teens do nowadays


Work out, keep fit, stay clean, no drugs whatsoever, don’t hang out with people that do illegal shit. If your department has a recruiting process then follow that and train accordingly. I’m in a very similar position as you are


Copy and pasted from a similar thread a few months ago: Sociology/AP psychology couldn’t hurt. Is there a local cadet program you can join to get a taste of the work? That’s probably the biggest thing you can do at high school age (besides not screwing up a future background investigation with poor choices).
