“I was involved in a case just a few months into my job and got my first taste of investigative work. I found it exhilarating to piece together information from different sources to understand the case. Through this experience, I also had the chance to work closely with officers from different divisions to move investigations forward. I felt tremendously proud to be part of the team.”
– “Charlene”, Research Analyst
