Famous words from a famous detective. For Lieutenant Columbo, it was always ‘just one more thing’. If he spent more than five minutes with you, there would continue to be just one more thing until he put the cuffs on you.
In addition to homicide, which was Columbo’s area of expertise, there are detectives working in many other areas of law enforcement, such as robbery, burglary, auto theft, organized crimes, and missing persons, just to name a few.
There are also detectives that work in the private sector, appropriately titled Private Investigators, or PI’s. A PI might work on cases involving infidelity, child custody, insurance investigations, and surveillance assignments. They also often assist the prosecution or the defense with criminal cases.
This week, your detective’s working on a case, and we want you to tell us all about it. He/she can be police or private – totally up to you.
