I am a senior in high school and I’ve had my mind set to being a PI. Tonight I just researched more and found out a detective and a PI is totally different. I have no interest in college I just want to go right into my career. Is it best to go to the police academy? Also what about the army could I get into being a detective easier if I go to the army?
I am a female in a small city and I want to move to a bigger city and accomplish my career. #career-paths #detective #private-investigator

So first choose the city and check the requirements. and then prepare requirements one by one. check the detail one as below :

Go to army is up to you but it will take some years, I hope the best choice in your situation.
