Nationwide, law enforcement budgets are on the rise. The Bureau of Justice Statistics reports that after annual increases since 1982, government spending on criminal justice reached approximately $228 billion in 2007. With growing law enforcement budgets, agencies see increasing demand for qualified, well-trained job candidates.
The criminal justice system offers a diverse range of career paths in its three major sectors: police protection, corrections and justice, and legal services. Within these sectors, individuals can pursue career paths that include state trooper, border patrol agent, lawyer, paralegal, court clerk, correctional officer, FBI agents, game warden and forensic investigator.
Individuals with law & criminal justice degrees can also find work in the private sector as computer security and digital forensics specialists, security guards and private investigators.
