Most Federal law enforcement positions will require a 4 year degree.
Many applicants have the degree plus either local law enforcement experience, or military experience (some will have both).
If you already have the degree, then you can begin the application process now. If you don't, then go get it. If you feel you need some further experience to be competitive, then you can look at adding other things onto your resume as well. You have time still; the cutoff for federal hire is not until 37.
Sometimes there's Justice...
and sometimes, there's Just Us
