Dddd--
It depends on what agency the investigator works for. I assume that you are asking about executing search warrants and arrests; again it depends if the investigator is a police officer or a peace officer; some investigators are civillians, and as such are there to work for a corporaton and not the public at large. This may mean better pay, benefits and working conditions, but a less attractive pension offering.

I work for the Dept of Homeless Services as a Fraud Investigator. My shield is a cross with an eagle perched on top. Some FI's that have been around longer have shields w/ serial numbers, although I happen to know there is no record of what ivestigator carries what badge#.

In our dept, fraid investigators are not peace officers, but in some, like the Dept. of Finance, they are. Badges carried by city investigators or fraud investigators are issued by the dept. they represent.

Your wrong about that. I work for DHS as well. The Dept does have some of the shield numbers on file but not all of them. As far as the peace officer status is concerned - did you know that an FI makes about 10G more a year than a DHS peace Officer? AFI 1 is the job you want. You'll make close to and possibly more than 100G if you want it.
