I would like to go into Law Enforcement and I need help into reaching that goal. I took in a open book home study course in Private Investigation at the School of Private Investigation. Professional School of Private Investigation from Atlanta, GA and I have recieved my diploma on August 1, 2005. My final grade was an 81%.

Errol, I am not in law enforcement but I too have taken the same course as you, I took it to help me when I worked security on an armored truck. I took the same course at PCDI/Ashworth College online home study. If I can give you some advice, the school is nationally accredited by the Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC), which is listed by the U.S. Department of Education as a nationally recognized accrediting agency for distance learning schools. There are some schools online that are fakes (this one is NOT) so my point is, I do not think you should volunteer this information that it is an online home study course. Apply for the position you want, supply them with a copy of your diploma and IF they ask, then you can go into detail regarding it being a home online study program. You don't want the employer to think you've received an online fake diploma. Good luck and let me know how it goes.

Just contact your local PD and if they are hiring you can fill out an application. Also check with the different law enforcement agencies in your country to find out if there are any openings available that you can apply for.
