Police officers protect lives and property. Detectives and criminal investigators, who are sometimes called agents or special agents, gather facts and collect evidence of possible crimes.
Mike Milburn's insight:
People who apply to become a cop has to do some training before anything. Depending whether you want to be a state or local cop, your training varies. Training includes some of the following, learning the constitutional law, civil rights, state, and local laws/ordinances. Some of the training also includes, street patrol, traffic patrol, gun training, and emergency response. Normally if people want to becomes detectives, they have to have five years of police experience before being promoted. You have a better chance of being promoted if you go to any college and take the criminal justice courses. Police and Military experience helps the most.

"Important Qualities Communication skills. Police and detectives must be able to speak with people when gathering facts about a crime and to express details about a given incident in writing. Empathy. Police officers need to understand the perspectives of a wide variety of people in their jurisdiction and have a willingness to help the public. Good judgment. Police and detectives must be able to determine the best way to solve a wide array of problems quickly. Leadership skills. Police officers must be comfortable with being a highly visible member of their community, as the public looks to them for assistance in emergency situations. Perceptiveness. Officers must be able to anticipate another person’s reactions and understand why people act a certain way. Physical stamina. Officers and detectives must be in good physical shape, both to pass required tests for entry into the field, and to keep up with the daily rigors of the job. Physical strength. Police officers must be strong enough to physically apprehend offenders."http://www.bls.gov/ooh/protective-service/police-and-detectives.htm#tab-4

The normal wage that is made from a police officer to a police detective is anywhere from 55,000 dollars to 75,000 dollars. Police Detective being the highest. On duty police officers, detectives, agents, and inspectors, are paid full time if they work full time. Overtime work is really common in this line of work. Junior officers sometimes work on holidays, weekends, and nights to get that extra money that normal officers, and police detectives make. If you are in the union as a police officer, or police detective, you get a substantial raise whereas if you are a normal detective, or officer, you won't be paid as much.
Brian Slack's curator insight, April 15, 2014 3:55 PM

Before you can become a detective or do anything else in this field you have to do your basic street time wich in most places is a minimum of 5 years. But i think its well worth the wait and the investment.

The normal wage that is made from a police officer to a police detective is anywhere from 55,000 dollars to 75,000 dollars. Police Detective being the highest. On duty police officers, detectives, agents, and inspectors, are paid full time if they work full time. Overtime work is really common in this line of work. Junior officers sometimes work on holidays, weekends, and nights to get that extra money that normal officers, and police detectives make. If you are in the union as a police officer, or police detective, you get a substantial raise whereas if you are a normal detective, or officer, you won't be paid as much.

People who apply to become a cop has to do some training before anything. Depending whether you want to be a state or local cop, your training varies. Training includes some of the following, learning the constitutional law, civil rights, state, and local laws/ordinances. Some of the training also includes, street patrol, traffic patrol, gun training, and emergency response. Normally if people want to becomes detectives, they have to have five years of police experience before being promoted. You have a better chance of being promoted if you go to any college and take the criminal justice courses. Police and Military experience helps the most.

Before you can become a detective or do anything else in this field you have to do your basic street time wich in most places is a minimum of 5 years. But i think its well worth the wait and the investment.
