I recommend that you look into colleges that offer degrees in criminal justice. Also it would be worthwhile to contact your local law enforcement agency to see if you could actually "interview" a special victims detective to find out how that individual trained for the position. I located this site on the internet https://study.com/articles/Become_a_Special_Victims_Unit_Detective_Career_Roadmap.html. I don't have personal knowledge about the site but it may have good information.
Jeanette recommends the following next steps:
- Try to set up informational interview with special victims detective.
- Conduct internet research to find out more about how to pursue a career as a Special Victim Detective.
- Research websites of local law enforcement agencies to find out if they have information about the required training.
- Find out if your school has pertinent career information about this field.
