Hi, I'm getting out of college soon and I'm researching different areas to work. The top priority of mine is to become a detective. But, it's the work before that I'm looking into. I'm researching the State Troopers against a local Police Department.
So far, it's looking a little better on the P.D. side than the State. My question is, is it better to have beat field experience rather than State experience when striving to become a detective?
Anything will help out a lot. Thanks guys!
