 As a kid ive always had a dream of becoming a police officer. as i grew older i wanted to become more of a detective or undercover officer. i know you must start as an officer, but i was wondering what all does it take to become either of my goals/dream. - cost, classes, schools, etc.

Believe it or not, not all departments have undercover (plain slothes) officers or even detectives. Get all the college education pertinent to Law Enforcement you can, get hired by an agency, learn all you can there, pay your dues (street time, time on the department, etc) and apply for the position.


That pretty much sums it up in a nut shell.

 Bump 36TR!


You need to worry about getting hired first. Why are getting all these question lately about being undercover? What's wrong with working the road? People are watching to much tv.


You wouldn't go in there for a million bucks...A Cop does it for less...A Reserve does it for free....

It use to be SWAT, now it's undercover.  Too much TV maybe?

I've been working the road for 20+ years. Wouldn't have it any other way :)

Hopefully they are above the six inch line of your shirt a lot of departments do not allow tattoos to be visible in uniform.
