My 13 year old told me that she wanted to make the world a safer place. She had watched a program about a murder(can't remember what we were watching) and she was outraged that there are people who can hurt others. So, she announced that she wanted to either be a prosecutor or a detective. She asked me how to become either one. I know that lawyers need prelaw and then law school but I don't know what kind of education that detectives need. I always like to encourage my children's dreams so I am curious if any of you know the requirements needed to become a detective.
