Assuming you mean Police Detective then you have to start by becoming a Policy Officer. After a few years of career progression you can then apply to become a sergeant who manages other officers or a detective who works cases.

https://www.joinlapd.com/career-ladders has an overview of the career progression for the LAPD.

Eventhough, it isn't required a degree in Criminal Justice would likely help you become a detective.
