Finding the ideal law enforcement agency for you can be difficult on the first try. The best way to find the proper fit is to thoroughly research the agency you're applying to and verify that it will match your qualifications and overall career objectives. For example, if you have minimal education and experience, you would need an entry-level position. If you have experience and education, you might be looking for a position with more responsibility and higher pay. Knowing as much as possible about the prospective agency will prove invaluable during the hiring process.
