Detectives are specially trained police officers who investigate and solve crimes of all types, from homicide to fraud. They gather evidence and facts, allowing them to crack even the most complicated of cases. Depending on the police agency they work for, they may also be known as investigators.
The work that homicide detectives do in their careers can vary quite a bit from day to day. When a body is found right away, there are many clues to be gathered. Other times, it's long after a murder that a body is found, and there are fewer clues to go on. In this situation, it's only with more modern DNA tests that a homicide detective may be able to crack a case.
Homicide reports always need to be clear and accurate, and each lead needs to be exhausted if a homicide detective wants to be successful. But homicide detectives can't be experts in all areas. They need to build relationships with colleagues with different areas of expertise. Depending on the case, homicide detectives may consult with medical examiners, forensic anthropologists, entomologists or ballistics experts, among others.
A successful homicide detective career is built on a solid foundation of the right kind of training and education. While police officers only need a high school education to begin their career, most who aspire to the higher ranks in the police department have a college education. A degree in criminal justice will give you a great background for a homicide detective career and the quickest route to promotion.
