Format: Paperback
The author spent many years working in criminology, he shares his knowledge of an extensive variety of jobs from security officer or sheriff to those with a scientific background or a bent for the legal field. There are many obscure areas requiring a full range of skills, interests, and personalities. The book adresses salaries, education, types of work, career ladders and informs the reader in the vast cross section of Careers in Criminal Justice.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Careers in Criminology covers a wide spectrum of law enforcement careers. Each section lists the type of job, its specialties and hazards, the skills and education requirements needed, and the salary. In the back is a list of websites and organizations you can contact.
If you aren't sure which avenue to take, I suggest reading the book all the way through. It is filled with interesting facts and pertinent information that can help you attain your career. If you already have an idea of what your interests are, you can skip to the relevant chapter. Recommended.

Format: Paperback
This book was so basic as to be worthless to me. I bought the 'two' book package that is often advertised.
The other book is called "Great Jobs for Criminal Justice Majors" and is more in-depth and helpful. I hate to post something so negative about a book but I just didn't find it worthy of the ten or eleven bucks I spent on it.
