PostSubject: Behavioral Analysis Unit   Mon Jul 11, 2011 4:41 pm

I'm graduating Highschool in 2013 and I'm wondering what i'd need in college to become a member of the Federal BAU.

I also want to major in writing, and work as a Detective in Florida.I"m going to UCF for college. Right now I've taken 3 years of German(2 in high school and 1 in middle school) but i plan on pursuing it college. i'm fooling around with the Japanese language. I speak English and plan on learning Spanish. I heard languages are a good thing to have for FBI. I usually have tops grades...As and bs....usually equal (4 As 4 Bs).

The year that is coming up i'm studying AP Psychology and plan on Majoring on it in College

I really just want to know some tips for being a fed and some tips to becoming a detective or a cop.

I'll appreciate anything really.

Being fluent in a foreign language can help you with the FBI. German won't help you much. Japanese and Spanish would though. Spanish is probably the best foreign language for law enforcement. Good luck!

Get the highest grade point average that you can in college. Think about getting an advanced degree. Foreign language skills are a plus. Get in the best shape you can. Focus on getting the best education and as much education as you can. Focus on improving your communication skills and "people" skills.

Per the FBI's website,

To become an FBI Special Agent you must be a U.S. citizen or a citizen of the Northern Mariana Islands. You must be at least 23 years of age, but younger than 37 upon your appointment as a Special Agent. Age waivers may be granted to preference eligible veterans who have surpassed their 37th birthday. You must possess a four-year degree from a college or university accredited by one of the regional or national institutional associations recognized by the United States Secretary of Education. You must have at least three years of professional work experience. You must also possess a valid driver's license and be completely available for assignment anywhere in the FBI's jurisdiction.

It's best to major in Accounting, Computer Science/Information Technology, Language or
Law. Then, get at least 3 years of experience in one of those fields. The FBI will only hire the best of the best!

To become a detective, get as much education as you can, and then become the best police officer you can. Work hard. Be the officer that other officers look to for guidance. With hard work and a bit of luck, you can become a detective.

It's good to set high goals, but remember that there are lots of other law enforcement jobs out there Smile

PostSubject: Thanks   Mon Aug 08, 2011 2:45 am

Thank you for answering guys and gals
Bill27 thanks, my dad said the same thing. He speaks Spanish. I guess i need to learn it to be an asset. That and it doesn't seem too hard to learn either. I'm good a languages i think.
Jenn Thank you. Your tips are right to the point. I was just wondering if you have done a job in this type of work. Just curious. Very Happy
Maximus. You information is of great help. I guess i have to work quickly to be the best i can be. Thanks a million
StgS. I've been waiting for someone to bring up Detective work. I think i want to dabble a little in it before pursuing BAU. Thought it would be good for a resume(') and put things in perspective for me. Thank you.
TheJohn. Thank you. I've thought of that and recently i've wondered if this is what i want to do, but i realize i need big goals and challenges to keep myself going. I have to do it. Or at least try A LOT.

Also i'm also open to other's opinions or ideas, or secrets to becoming a BAU Officer, or Detective.

You could go for psychology. If you do, I would get an advanced degree, and be sure to get at least 3 years of good work experience.
