Knowing that you have a Master's in Criminal Justice in Homeland Security, you should be well positioned to start your career. However, since most legitimate recruiting firms do not charge the potential employees, it's not a bad idea. Be careful and research the company before signing up since there are some less ethical recruiters who just send out loads of resumes and spam employers. At best, they won't get you a job. Worst case, they will damage your reputation and block you from getting a job at some companies.
Best of luck!
