    Should police have more education than just "high" school?

    Ideally yes, but in the real world...

    Well, "Dim" & "Georgie", "Alex's" two droogs in "A Clockwork Orange" clearly didn't.  They seem to fit the mold for FAR too many cops.  The job entails being the hired goons for gov't & corporate capitalism, so education isn't necessary.  You only fool yourself if you think demanding a higher level of education will make cops better.  All that would happen is that job turnover rates would soar as the educated saw what the job expects them to do & what their "fellows" expect them to do.  The problem isn't their education level; it's the biker-gang mentality of bigotry that they uphold in their ranks - "one of us",  "them" - How odd.  I thought we were all citizens of the same country.

    Oddly the one part of the police test that is the failed the most is the psych test or review.  I'm not sure how often they have to take it, but perhaps all police should have to be reevaluated every year or 2 years.

    The source is old, but this gives an example. Two of my coworkers husbands tried and failed that portion of the test.

    They need to have at least one brain cell more than Trump. [That means they need TWO.]

    They need continual combat training, not just a crash course.
