Would a potential future 'homicide detective' be able to Google 'how to become a homicide detective'? I guess not.

If you've looked into joining the police you'll see what the requirements are. What makes you think you'll need any sort of law degree? Are you from the UK? We don't use the term 'homicide detective'.

I'll be completing my philosophy degree within the next few years and was wondering if anyone knew if I could become a homicide detective from this degree choice?
Would I have to do a law conversion degree?
To become a detective in the UK you have to work as a regular policeman for several years, make promotions and get training on the job. People may study things such as criminology alongside their training.
