You were always the person in your group of friends who followed the rules, never TPing, prank phone calling, staying out past curfew, or even speeding 3 mph over the limit. And to this very day, you refuse to put a toe out of line. You’re already a hardcore follower of every letter of the law, so why not get paid it?
Your options in criminal justice are far and wide — and jobs in this field are on the rise. In fact, police and detective jobs are forecasted to rise by 10% now until 2018,* and cybersecurity is more in demand as technology advances and integrates itself into society. Average salary varies greatly depending on the discipline you are interested in (e.g., $27,000 average security guard salary to $75,000 average homicide detective salary).*
Your passion to protect, service, and investigate exists without a question. Now all it takes is putting that into motion. You see what is right and wrong — and you want to fix the wrong to make the community a safer place. How you do it is up to you. Start your path to criminal justice today.*Bureau of Labor Statistics, Occupational Outlook Handbook *Satisfaction in the Practice of Law: Findings from a Long-Term Study of Attorneys' Careers
