Definition and Nature of the Work

Detectives investigate, prevent, and solve crimes against people and property. Many work for police departments, while others are employed by business and industry. Detectives use modern techniques and tools, including computers and elaborate communications systems, to prevent and solve crimes ranging from shoplifting to mass murder.

Police detectives observe criminals' actions, develop sources of information, and assist in the arrest of criminals. They often work undercover. Dressed in civilian clothes while on duty, they go to places that a suspect is known to frequent so they get to know the suspect's habits and actions. For example, detectives assigned to a gambling case might spend time at a suspect's favorite bar, posing as other gamblers and trying to learn as much as possible about the case. The detectives might also find informers in the neighborhood who have information about the suspect. Having gathered enough evidence against the suspect, the detectives can make the arrest with the help of police reinforcements.

Some detectives work for private detective agencies or individual clients. They are often former police officers, although some are trained by the private agencies themselves. Because they are not part of the police force, they have no power to make arrests. Private investigators gather information from police sources, interview witnesses, and observe suspects. Lawyers and other companies hire investigators to gather information for court trials and to investigate fraud, the passing of bad checks, and other matters. Many insurance companies hire private detectives to investigate insurance claims. Parents may hire them to locate missing children.

Some private detectives work as bodyguards for people who are in personal danger. Store detectives guard against customer shoplifting and employee theft, while bouncers ensure that order is maintained in restaurants, nightclubs, and other places of entertainment. House detectives, or hotel detectives, protect patrons from disturbances and evict troublemakers.

Education and Training Requirements

High school diplomas, or the equivalent, are required for both police and private detectives. High school courses in English, science, math, social science, and physical education provide good preparation for the field. Foreign languages, journalism, and typing are also helpful. An increasing number of police departments require a year or two of college coursework, including classes in police science, criminology, and law.

Many detectives work for police departments, investigating criminals' actions, gathering facts for cases, observing suspects, and assisting in arrests. (Frank H. Conlon/Getty Images News/Getty Images.)

Police detectives start as police officers. Applicants for positions as police officers usually must be at least twenty-one years old, meet certain height and weight requirements, and be in good physical condition. After they have demonstrated that they have the skills necessary for detective work, they may be assigned to detective duty on a probationary basis. Some police departments require that detectives pass an exam.

Most police detectives are trained for six weeks to several months, depending on the program. Those who successfully complete the training program will probably be assigned to detective work permanently. They may be required to take refresher courses periodically to update their skills and techniques.

Because many private detectives are former police detectives, their education and training requirements are similar to those of police detectives. Private detectives also learn skills on the job from experienced private detectives.

In some states, private detectives must be licensed and participate in specially designed training programs. Each state requires a firearm permit.

Getting the Job

Job seekers can apply directly to police departments to take the police department entrance exam. Private detectives with credentials can apply to detective agencies, hotels, restaurants, law firms, manufacturing firms, and department stores.

Advancement Possibilities and Employment Outlook

Skilled and experienced police detectives can advance to chief of detectives or chief of police. Private detectives can advance to senior positions in detective agencies or become supervisors of security or detective staffs in private companies. Good detectives can start their own detective agencies.

The employment outlook for detectives is very good. Although job opportunities in police forces will be limited, openings in the private investigation field will grow faster than the average for all jobs through 2014. Companies, hotels, and restaurants increasingly use private detectives to protect their own and their customers' property. Investigators who specialize in Internet crimes, such as identity theft, spamming, e-mail harassment, and illegal downloading of copyrighted materials, will have many job opportunities.

Working Conditions

Detectives' work may be exciting and dangerous or routine and safe, depending on their assignments. Police detectives investigating narcotics smugglers may be exposed to the threat of physical violence or death. On the other hand, private detectives working as security guards may only check employee identification cards and handle routine complaints. The work of most detectives falls between these two extremes.

Detectives often work irregular hours, including nights and weekends. Although they may have to work more than forty hours a week on certain cases, they are generally given time off to compensate for their overtime.

Earnings and Benefits

Salaries for detectives vary widely and depend on experience, location, and the responsibilities of the job. In 2004 the median salary of police detectives was $53,990 per year, with the top ten percent earning more than $86,010 per year. The median salary of private detectives was $32,110 per year. The most experienced, successful private detectives earned more than $58,470 per year.

For those who aspire to be detectives, my advice would be to pursue a career in law enforcement rather than pi work.

Stay away from pi. With all being factored in, pi will be the lowest paying job you will ever have.

PI companies are notorious for burning through employees. They will expect you to use your own vehicle to work their cases without paying much in terms of vehicle use expense.

Most pi companies will probably not pay anything more then 15 to 20 an hour which may sound good at first.
Unfortunately the work will be sporatic at best and you will be expected to travel to their cases on your own dime.

More than likely they will put you on a 1099 form rather than a w2 which means that you will be responsible for the full fica which is a little over 15% of you taxable income.

A a 1099 subcontractor, you will also be responsible for withholding and filing own federal and state taxes and paying for your own worker's comp insurance.

Since you will be on 1099, you will not receive unemployment benefits for your down time. Sporatic work at 15 or 20 an hour just will not see you through for the times when the do not have work for you.


Most Pi companies will also expect you to provide your own cam corder, digital camera, button cam, lap top with internet and software to upload your video to them by email.

You will spend hours typing reports and doing data entry which you will more than likely be doing on your own time at the conclusion of your caes.

If you belive that working for more than one pi company is the answer, think again. The few pi companies at the top of the food chain are highly competetive with each other and do not take kindly to freelancers working their competitors as well.

All of the above is the reason you will see the same few pi companies constantly posting help wanted ads all over the internet.


On the other end of the spectrum, being a self employed PI is not much of a bargain either. People generally are unwilling to pay for this service and most times expect you to help them for free. I could never figure out why, since even a doctor charges a fee for saving a life or delivering a baby, why would a pi be expected to work for charity.

Most attorneys that will contact you will be ambulance chasers or criminal defense attorneys. Most ambulance chasers are deadbeats who burn through pi's quicker than they change their underwear. If they do pay you at all, it is usually after either they settle their case or you threaten to kidnap their children in leu of payment. Needless to say, settling a case may take years. You will most likely be out of business by then anyhow.

As for criminal defense attorneys, their clients rarely can afford your services and the ones who have some money, rarely have anything left after they get through paying the attorneys advanced retainer. Either the criminal defense attorney or the attorneys client will call you crying the blues about having no money and requesting your help on a promise if even that.

The only thing left are contracts with the insurance companies which usually require the pi has an office and staff in order to service the contracts. These kind of contracts usually go to the larger companies or national surveillance vendors. National surveillance vendors are large corporate conglomerates, who have been flooding the field in the last several years and basically putting the smaller companies out of business.


In addition you will have to compete with the garbage peddlers on the internet who specialize in selling out dated or inacurate information they receive from proprietary data bases. Since their price is usually under $30.00 for a search, your pool of potential clients will do business with the internet companies before coming to you. Once realizing they have been ripped off, these people will now contact you for free advice hoping you will feel sorry for them and help them out for free.


When I think of the pi business free and not enough is all that comes to mind. You are either working for free or not enough to even cover the cost of the investigation, much less turn a profit.

Few people do well in this business. Those who do well at it, usually have something else going on in addition to pi work. Others have fat police pensions to fall back on or spouses who make a very good living.

This is the truth about pi business and anyone telling you otherwise is being less than truthful.

There are two types of private investigators. The ones who went out of business and the ones who are going out of business.

I have been at this 20 years and I am leaving the business. Overall, I have been broke too many times to count.

What is with all the kids in here who want to become a detective? You need a HIGH SCHOOL DEGREE, PEOPLE.

Anyhow, I'm 14... I have no interest in perusing as a Detective. I'm actually already have a profession, I'm an artist... But to be honest, I always thought detective was actually a pretty cool job... I'm not sure why, but I'm sure it's because I'm fascinated movies by noir movies... This job seems very interesting to say the least. (Kind of badass, to be honest...) But I find it hilarious that people want to become detectives at the age of 12-15... Even when the article allegedly says "Police detectives investigating narcotics smugglers may be exposed to the threat of physical violence or DEATH."

Hello, my name is Rachael and I'm currently 14 years of age (not that I believe my agent is relevant to my comment). I have a typical, but yet true statement in which everyone seems to ignore. There are people on here responding so negatively towards others aspirations and I think that whether or not you believe they are completely delusional should be something you keep to yourself. I am also interested in this aspect of field (more specifically in becoming a SVU detective) and am aware of the dangers involved (especially because of the increase of crime in this generation in comparison to others. I assume). As I was explaining earlier, these children, teenagers, (whatever you wish to address them by) will more than likely (including myself) grow into another profession by the time we are eligible to begin training in a police department/academy. I already have unsure thoughts about whether this is the career for me and my recommendation for others that are as confused as I am, is to trial before committing yourselves. Majority of schools around my location participate in work experience, and I'm under the impression that there are similar (or perhaps the exact same) programs for people to be involved in globally. So why not sign yourselves up after a bit of research?? Anyways, I wish you all luck and would like to thank those whom already are in the police department and serving each and every country. Sounds a bit over dramatic for a 'typical' comment, but what the heck. :)

Anyways I have a question regarding how to mentally and emotionally prepare myself for this type of work. Physically, I understand it requires a ton of work and I would honestly have to be 100% dedicated for this to ever work. But I'm more concerned with how I would be able to get on with my life (which would be understandingly interrupted on a constant basis more than I could ever imagine), after witnessing such horrifying scenes. Especially because I am not a strong person emotionally when it comes to others situations (if that makes sense?) and I rather see myself as quite sensitive. Any tips on how I can build up and prepare myself for this?

Anyways thanks for such more needed information on this topic! :)
