Hi List,

I tried posting this before, didn't go through. So I am trying again.

I am interested in becoming a Forensics/Cyber Crime Investigator
preferably with any law enforcement agency in Canada. I will graduate
this April with a Bachelor in Computer Engineering. I have some
experince in Forensics and IT security from coop placements and wanted
to take this option as a career.

My questions are:

1) What kind of certification is the most demanding/respected among
law enforcement aganices in Canada/US?

2) If anyone on the list is with RCMP, OPP or any other law
enforcement agency here could you please give me any information on a
possible career path. Where do I start? Are these kind of jobs
considered as a civilian job?

3) Those in the USA: could you please tell me if I can have any
prospect there as a Canadian citizen. I would imagine you would need
an US citizen to work in the law enforcement agencies, but what about
private organizations?

4) Any information in building a career path in this field would be helpful.

Thanks everyone.
