  • Computer Crime Units

    Who knows of any south FL departments that have computer crime units. I have a bachelors degree in IT and will be applying soon. I want to join a department where I can be part of cybercrime investigations. Your responses are appreciated.

    MDPD has one of the finest computer crime units in the country, but you have to wear boots before you get into it.

      Every Police Dept/Sheriff's Dept/Federal Agency that I know of (regardless of the state), you have to be on the street for while before you can apply for a job like that.

      I just went to a class ran by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and everyone there (from about 40 different states) was a seasoned LEO.

        If you want to go directly into computer crimes, these agencys do hire directly into a position dealing with such issues:

        Air Force OSI Agents

        Army CID Agents

        Most State AG's Offices

          4+ years on the street, and usually 2 years of being a detective before you can even apply for a Computer Forensics Dept...

          I believe this is partially because you get sent to a 3 month FBI training academy for computer investigation. That is a very $$$$$ class for your agency.

            I don't mind the work I have to do to get in. A few years out on the street will be fine I just want to find the right department so I don't have to move around. I want to establish my pension with one department and not have to start all over again with another after a few years of experience.
            The thing is that the departments don't have any information on their website concerning this particular unit. I know Pembroke Pines has one because I went through their Citizen Police Academy. I heard Broward Sheriffs has one but the agency is under fire from what I have read. There are a few good paying departments in the area and I need to know who has this type of unit. Thanks for all your feedback I will continue to do some research. I applied to FBI so we will see what comes of that before I apply locally.
