QCriminal Justice/Police Patrol Officer Information??

I'm 15 years old, and I am a sophomore in High School. I have been definitely thinking about becoming a Police Officer, and that is what my career choice is as of right now. I was researching and found you need 4 years of Criminal Justice schooling. I looked around at schools and saw that a Technical College in my area offers a Associates Degree in Criminal Justice. I also saw they do Psychology testing, as well as Physical testing to become a Police Officer. I asked my dad about becoming a Police Officer awhile ago, and he said that becoming one is extremely difficult. He said something like 100's of people apply per year, and only like 10-20 are accepted. Is it really difficult becoming a City/County Patrol Officer if you have the schooling? The area I live in is generally small, with about a 36,000 Population or so. All info is appreciated!
