What is required to be one?
To be one, you'll need to have at least a bachelor's degree in criminal justice, if you take other classes like law enforcement, human anatomy, psychology, biology, and a few athletic classes. The more years of experience you have with these subjects, the better!
How do I get there?
Well first, you'll have to join the police force and become a regular police officer. After a few months if you're lucky enough, you'll get promoted and hopefully become a homicide detective. Your average work will increase significantly from $27 an hour to $36 dollars an hour.
