Cops with bachelor degrees are common in the UK now, same as the volunteer special constables who are volunteering to improve their chances when the next 'regular' recruitment intake happens.

People would want said 'volunteers' to have degrees too, and no one is going to take a un-paid/volunteer job after getting a degree.
Good question, but with this conservative government we aren't gonna get any new regulars anytime soon, we've lost another 200 constables in my area this year due to budget cuts.

Could it be through that its so difficult to get into the regular service because there are so many volunteer specials?
You see the dilemma?
Real Police is a calling, and in many ways somewhat more than just a job, if they are doing it correctly.

Honestly? Is volunteering not allowed?
Wow that seems nuts to me, our Royal National Lifeboat Institution are all volunteers, risking their lives to save mariners and only being paid expenses and a cup of tea or some cake when they get back to their base.

We have volunteer services, like firemen.
