Summary Understanding the wide scope of jobs open to someone interested in protective services, from first responders to social workers, is important for anyone preparing for a career in protective services, including opportunities working for federal state, or local governments like police and fire departments or in Homeland Security; for nonprofits and organizations that help care for children, the elderly, or those suffering from mental illness or substance abuse; and even in for-profit, private practices as detectives and investigators.
