5 Tips for Becoming a Detective
Make Solid, Good Arrests
When you make arrest out on the street, make sure that your reports are clear and concise and meet all the elements of the offense. Use your spell check. Remember, the division that will promote you is reading and reviewing your current reports, and they will want detectives with intelligence, that can read and write properly, and know how to enforce the law and file a good case.
Hopefully following these tips will help you on your way to the investigative division in your department. You may even end up working a high profile case one day and heck; those Hollywood producers may even come knocking on your door, wanting to make you the next Sgt. Joe Friday….
Work hard and stay safe.
