Despite this reality, many people continue to be attracted to the career field for a variety of reasons. In May of 2008, according to the U. S. Department of Labor Occupational Handbook, there were approximately 883,600 police and detectives. Police departments hiring entry requirements include a high school diploma to college education, and higher. People with the ability to speak more than one language who have relevant training, or occupational experience in the military, are highly sought.
