The career I will pursue when I graduate from college is a police detective or a police officer. I plan on settling here in Santa Maria, Ca or I will end up moving to Los Angeles, Ca when I graduate from attending a four year university. The skills I need to pursue to become a police detective is to be a U.S. citizen and to be at least 21 years old. I also must have a drivers licence and to have past physical fitness tests. I will have many responsibilites of being a police detective, like protecting everyone in town or to provide testimony in court to become a witness, etc.
