Hello everyone. I'm specifically hoping that this post reaches the eyes of you, who have experience in this field and could offer any advice, pointers etc.

My story - I dreamed, from the time I was young, maybe 8 or 9 years old, of being a police officer. By the time I graduated high school in 2007, I still had the dream but wasn't quite confident enough in myself to pursue it. I started taking classes working towards a degree in business management. Two semesters of that and enough was enough. It was not for me.

I worked a few jobs until I was just about twenty one years old, saving the money to go to the police academy, and finally I had saved enough. I went to the academy, graduated, gained employment at a department and realized this job isnt for me either. I was devistated. Something I always dreamed of I found wasnt for me.

I recently was introduced to Digital forensics and the possibilities. I am registered for courses at a college in my area to start working towards being educated and certified in order to work in this field.

MY QUESTION - Can anyone offer me tips pointers advice that may be of some help? It would greatly be aprreciated.

What part of law enforcement work was not for you?

What part of digital forensics appeals to you?
