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.

By A Customer on January 6, 2003
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.
