Today’s competitive job market is filled with employers seeking applicants who have a combination of higher education, work experience, and relevant professional certifications. The field of criminal justice is no different. Many officers may not think certifications are important, but with the growth of specialized units it has become increasingly important for officers to demonstrate their expertise.

One area often overlooked by officers is the investigation of financial or “white collar” crimes. The most well-known credential for this specialty is the Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) certification. CFEs are professionals who have received training in the prevention, detection, deterrence, and investigation of fraud. They have also been trained to identify the warning signs that indicate potential fraud or high levels of fraud risk. This credential is sought not only by law enforcement agencies, but also by private-sector companies and financial institutions that need personnel to investigate such crimes. ​
