After 30 years in law enforcement with extensive experience in criminal investigations and supervision, I'm exploring retirement and finding another job in the private sector that will utlize the skills I've acquired during my career.  I'm looking for a full-time position with a decent salary, which excludes typical security jobs and bank fraud.  I'm located in southeast Pennsylvania and cannot relocate.  I'm open to suggestions for potential jobs and employers in my area.

Check with some insurance company's as an investigator. It may require a BS/BA Degree. Teach college part time.

You can also look at large law firms that handle Civil cases. Most large firms have several former/retired guys working for them. Best of luck and enjoy your retirement.

Whereas I do agree with Uncledennis on this topic, I thought that when I retired I didn't have to do that work thing anymore....

Now that depends on how much your pension is and how much you wife likes to spend money.  I retired 11 years ago and I'm still working my behind off.


Does your agency have cold case investigations.  In my agency, this is done by retired Officers that are qualified.  They work under contract. In that way the agency is able to get the cases worked on without having to pay as much and do not have to provide health insurance or pension.

Many of my old partners etc have gone into the Private Investigations, usually in a company that was founded or is being run by another of our group of retired Officers. A good number of them have also gone to work for the banks in the security and fraud divisions. Other security for Federal Courthouse or large businesses such as BMW, Michelin, etc. Others are enjoying just being security guards.

When I retired from the City, I thought the same thing about working in the private sector, however with the josb market so tight, those jobs are cut way back and I found there was nothing available. What I did find was a job with USIS, (United States Investigative Service) working for the Federal Office of Personnel Management (OPM).  I was doing background investigations for Top Secret Security Clearences, for the Govt.  The work was excellent, but the pay was lacking.  I have heard that they have brought the pay up a lot, but I am not sure what it is today.  The Defense Department (DSS) does the same thing as USIS does, but the pay is much higher. They usually post their openings on the USAJOBS website.  The job title is Investigator.  You have to wait to get cleared for a Top Sectret Clearence SCI, and it usually takes about 6 to 9 months for it to be issued.
