Law Enforcement

Specializing in law enforcement may provide the individual with the information they may need to protect the community and prevent crime. Law enforcement careers may cover a broad range, from police officers to sheriffs to federal agents. Essentially, any profession in which the individual prevents the law from being broken, or enforces adherence to the law to keep the peace in a local community or larger jurisdiction, can be considered law enforcement. One of the largest fields within law enforcement is that of police officer. Police are the local law enforcers who arrest suspects and prepare crime scenes to be investigated by detectives and CSIs. Other subfields of law enforcement include parole officers, correctional officers, wardens, security guards, and state wildlife agencies.
