The criminal justice career field keeps expanding on all levels. A more security-conscious society combined with population growth continues to increase the demand for police services, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
This increased demand is the result of heightened security concerns, increased litigation and the need to protect confidential information and property of all kinds. The proliferation of criminal activity on the Internet will continue to require more security and investigative professionals. Employee background checks will become standard for an increasing number of jobs. Growing financial activity worldwide will increase the need to control internal and external financial losses, monitor competitors, and investigate industrial spying.
Applicants with military experience or college training will have the best opportunities. Those with a bachelor’s degree and several years of law enforcement or military experience will have the best opportunities for positions in Federal agencies.
Integrity, honesty and sound judgment play an important role in any criminal justice-related career. Successful professionals in this field have a strong sense of responsibility and are able to control even very tense situations. They are comfortable serving as a role model for their community.
