7. De­tec­tives and crim­i­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tors

Financial Mirror (Cyprus) - - FRONT PAGE -

Un­em­ploy­ment rate, 2014: 0.8% Me­dian an­nual pay, 2012: $74,300 Em­ploy­ment change, 2012-2022: 2.0%

The ma­jor­ity of de­tec­tives and crim­i­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tors are em­ployed by lo­cal gov­ern­ments or the fed­eral ex­ec­u­tive branch. The me­dian in­come of de­tec­tives and in­ves­ti­ga­tors was $74,300 in 2012, among the higher fig­ures re­viewed. If a de­tec­tive or in­ves­ti­ga­tor was em­ployed by the fed­eral gov­ern­ment, he or she could likely make far more, with such em­ploy­ees fre­quently earn­ing more than $100,000 an­nu­ally as of 2012. While high lev­els of ed­u­ca­tion are of­ten a re­quire­ment for pro­fes­sions with the low­est un­em­ploy­ment rates, de­tec­tives and in­ves­ti­ga­tors are typ­i­cally only re­quired to have a high school diploma in ad­di­tion to law en­force­ment ex­pe­ri­ence.
