Hi there! I would start at the local state level to see what the requirements are for PI licensure. Most states require passing relevant exams at minimum, but other states also require prior experience (PI roles). As for detectives, that depends if you are looking for private or public roles. Most public roles require law enforcement training completion and passing relevant exams, and then subsequently getting hired at a department as an Officer first and then moving to a detective role after some experience. Not all require a college degree, but most require some college attendance/associates degree etc.
