Detective vs Specialist
In many agencies, specialized assignments are available after a few years of regular patrol duties. Officers can specialize in a particular field like chemical and microscopic analysis, training and firearms instruction, or fingerprint identification. Others work with special units such as horseback, bicycle, motorcycle, harbor patrol, canine, special weapons and tactics (SWAT); or emergency response teams. A few local and special law enforcement officers primarily perform jail-related duties or work in courts.
Detectives are plainclothes investigators who gather facts and collect evidence for criminal cases. Some are assigned to interagency task forces to combat specific types of crime. They conduct interviews, examine records, observe the activities of suspects, and participate in raids or arrests. Detectives and state and federal agents and inspectors usually specialize in investigating one type of violation, such as homicide or fraud.
They are assigned cases on a rotating basis and work on them until an arrest and conviction is made or until the case is dropped.
