The criminal justice field is booming.

According to the 2008-2009 Occupational Handbook, careers in law enforcement, criminal justice and protection services are growing nationally at a rate between 6 and 17 percent. Between 2008 and 2013, it’s expected that jobs in the Dallas-Fort Worth criminal justice field will grow more than 20 percent.
