Homicide Detective Second Grade 2006-2010 (Former Employee), NY – May 21, 2014
A typical day at work for me was totally different from that of others. Sometimes I would come in and there wouldn't be anything going on or I would be called in the middle of the night for a triple homicide. The detectives that you worked with were top of the line, we usually got a lot done. The hardest part of the job was that sometimes no matter how hard you worked a case, that case would go cold pending further leads. The most enjoyable part of job was giving families some sort of closure so that they could start the process of healing. One other enjoyable part was going home to your family.
