Is it common for departments down there to hire directly into an investigator position? I have a good friend who's a direct hire criminal investigator with a sheriff's department up here but they aren't deputies (deliberately as the bulk of their job is IA stuff) and they are in a different union.

Hmm.. been a little while since I’ve had the title detective. Granted, I had the grizzly adams with earrings look, so I wasn’t exactly the spitting image of sherlock holmes

Itís not standard or common. The problem most agencies are facing nationwide is that recruiting numbers for academies are still down and havenít seen a rebound since the end of Obamaís term. I teach at one of the schools. I remember when we had 120+ kids in a school at any time all fighting over limited openings and now, schools are lucky to run 15-20, and some cancel the school rotations for lack of applicants. Right now our agency is mostly young bucks on the road. Iíve examined the available internal officers and none would be qualified for this. And the few that have the potential, want more time to run down the roads at night. There is also no requirement for prior LEO experience. If a person possesses a military or contractor or civilian background that could bring an asset to the team, they will be considered.

There is also no policy against tattoos unless they are on your face or sides of you neck. If you have “sleeves”, you can wear a long sleeve button up and all will be well.

We also hire disabled veterans. Even if it’s 100%. We have earned the rep around the area for hiring more disabled veterans than any law enforcement agency around.

This seems like a good opportunity for someone looking to get into LE. Having worn the Detective, Detective Investigator, title a bit if I were a younger man this would be enticing.

How do the troops feel that an “Outsider” can be direct hired as an investigator? Do the investigator’s make more money? IMHO not having worked a radio car would be a disadvantage but then again I’m old school.

I don’t want to take up more of your bandwidth so will close and I hope you find outstanding recruits and that they go on to do great things.

Most of us, were hired from the outside and brought in from other agencies into these positions. Some folks at the lower units, will complain occasionally and say something however, the folks that would be inclined are also no longer employed with us. Most people that work here recognize that there is a lack of qualifications and experience, and understand the need to search outside.

The pay is significantly higher in investigations for the patrol units. I do believe there are benefits to having worked the road, and understanding how to be a cop before coming to investigations. But I have also seen some folks from the military, who worked specific jobs say in intel, some other SOF roles, and what not, who come in and hit the ground running and prove to be more valuable than the officer who worked in a small town with low crime and who has never been in a fight a day in his life. It depends on the specifics that are being compared in my opinion.

I am a huge proponent of formal education and certifications. A man who is the greatest road warrior but who cannot write a single report nor conduct a decent interview would be no use to me. An officer, who might have been the greatest PR officer, and proactive might not possess the skill sets to investigate major crimes, work with abused kids, and look at child porn throughout their day... just a few examples.

This position is sworn, and full time. However, I can modify the schedules and be flexible if there are certain days or periods where the person prefers to come in later, working later, or come in through the night or whichever is best. North Carolina recognizes Maryland's certifications and training. You would basically complete the high liability areas; driving, firearms and SCAT (combatives), and take our state examination and be certified. In the mean time, you can work with us for up to 12 months without having taken your state exam. The Sheriff in NC has the power to swear folks in without certification for 12 months prior to being required to be certified by the state. Hope that helps.

Nancy sends her regards.
