Typical Process for Homicide Detective?
Just curious if anyone could tell me what the typical process is to become a homicide detective. I am applying to several police departments, and my ultimate goal is to eventually become a homicide detective. I would assume it is very competitive, but is there testing for the job? Is there a standardized test, or does each department have their own? Can someone typically apply for this after a couple years on patrol?
Any and all info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your help!
