Police Officer to FBI
I am interested in entering the Police academy then working towards becoming a FBI Agent, what are the abilities & capabilities in order to get a head start into reaching my goal?
He worked in the police force in Northern California & then applied to the FBI & was accepted into the Behavioral Sciences group that has become very popular & necessary over the past 30+ years.
Before he retired from the FBI he was involved in multiple high profile serial killer cases in the country & was often called into the criminal trial process as an expert witness
Once he retired from the FBI he set up his own consulting company as a Profiler & because of his FBI reputation he was called into on-going criminal investigations both within & outside the USA.
He even was approached in retirement to create a television series about serial killer cases that he had worked on during his FBI career & about cases he was consulted on while in retirement
His career path was definitely unique but because he wasnt complacent about learning the underlying technology in profiling as it evolved during his career at the FBI he was able to take career further into retirement
If you are interested in starting in the police force first, I recommend starting with a Bachelor's degree, applying for the police force and sticking with it for at least 2 years and then applying for the FBI.
