According to the most recent comprehensive study of law enforcement agencies in the United States published by BJS (Bureau of Justice Statistics) in 2002, there are 17,000 police agencies throughout the United States employing approximately 922,000 police officers at the federal, state, and local levels of government. The vast majority of these officers have received little or no preparation and/or training in how to investigate “white-collar crime”. Additionally, within the private sector there is a need to hire qualified people to perform in-house investigations for companies in a variety of sectors, including banking and financial institutions, insurance companies, manufacturing firms, a variety of organizations within the service sector, computer and software companies, transportation and utility services, wholesale and retail trade. The need in both the public and private sectors of employment is immense and growing.
