Tecnically a minimum of two years. Practically more than that. Retreads (hires from other departments) could be in the two years depending on their previous years and experience.

Most places (to my understanding) start new detectives with property crimes or auto theft. Even if they're general assignment -- they start out with the simpler, more straightforward stuff before they move into more complicated crimes. Some exceptions are some special investigation units, like narcotics or gang units, or places that make traffic fatality/accident reconstructionists detectives.

In my agency, you start out as a homicide detective, as well as a traffic cop, Game Warden, Livestock official, Brand Inspector, Paper Server, Narc, Crash Investigator, DWUI TFO, Street Crimes Officer, psychologist, marriage counselor, arbitrator, Fire Marshall, burglary/robbery, and all-around whipping boy."Nothing says guilty like a high-priced lawyer."

With about 5-6 years on the street you MAY be ready to make a step up to Det. on a general assignment. After 2-3 years of that you MAY be ready for homicide. Just depends on how fast you can move with your cases. Lots of paperwork and long hours." A law is valuable not because it is a law, but because there is right in it." - Henry Ward Beecher
