At times your job can be dangerous, at times you’ll be tracking fugitives to arrest them. At times you’ll be thinking like a detective. And yet at other times, you’ll be protecting witnesses. With that being said that’s where the adventure is. At other times your duties may be routine dealing with documentation and managing any illegal property.
With any career you’re considering, it’s always a good idea to shadow or interview someone that’s successful in the field. This can give you insights as to what you’re in for and keep you from getting into a career that’s not a good fit for you.
