The Sims Edit

Law Enforcement Career Levels
1) Security Guard
A badge, a gun... and the graveyard shift. As you're required to supply your own firearm and uniforms, it doesn't leave much in your pay envelope. Also you can't leave your post which means your skills on the hot plate come in handy at meal breaks. Skill Cooking 0 Skill Mechanical 0 Skill Charisma 0

2) Cadet
You're going to the Police Academy, with a starting salary from the city burning a hole in your blues. Like a combination of boot camp and college, the experience can be physically and mentally draining. Improve your body skill so you can graduate and get a real job.

4) Desk Sergeant
A break from the mean streets, and a promotion with pay hike...but tons of paperwork. However, you're on regular hours with a reduction in physical demands. If you get tired of this desk job, improve those body and mechanical skills and you may be out on the street in a much more interesting job... Skill Cooking 0 Skill Mechanical 2 Skill Charisma 0

Well-rounded skills, especially logic, will hasten that next promotion. Skill Cooking 0 Skill Mechanical 3 Skill Charisma 0

Cases have a higher profile, and your experience has advanced you to a better pay rate. As a Lieutenant, you are a Detective Squad Leader, and you need to keep those skills sharpened. The stress of dealing with that thick unsolved folder of Sim City crimes can do damage to your home life. Try to emphasize "family time" and recreation when at home to achieve a proper balance.

Captain Hero will eventually change careers and become a TV Star in the Entertainment career track.

The Sims 2Edit

In The Sims 2, the career reward object is the Prints Charming Fingerprint Scanner. It is awarded at the Detective level and enhances a Sim's ability to improve the Cleaning skill. The scanner can also detect the last Sim to have used an object that is scanned and will display their picture with a thought bubble (If no Sim has used the object a random Sim is chosen). If The Sims 2: Apartment Life is installed, Jocks are likely to work in this career.

In The Sims 2, Captain Hero does not have a carpool, but flies to and from work. If the player cancels the Go to Work action, Captain Hero will not be able to go to work unless he or she has access to a car or Apartment Life is installed.

The Sims 3Edit

Law Enforcement career icon
Law Enforcement is a career track in The Sims 3. It has two branches: Special Agent and Forensics. Sims will be required to write reports. This can be done by questioning Sims (though they will refuse, resulting in negative points for both Sims, if they don't like each other) or rummaging through their trash cans (literally digging the "dirt" on that Sim) and then selecting "write report on" in a computer.

Work place: Police Department

How to apply: Computer or Newspaper/ Apply for job at Police Department

Performance options: Business as Usual, Take it Easy, Work Hard, Chat with Partner, Work on Independent Case, Use Workout Facility, Sleep in Jail cell (Requires Heavy/Light Sleeper Trait)

After the 5th level promotion, the player is given a choice between the two branches: Special Agent or Forensic Analyst. The big difference is in the Bonus actions that each branch gives, as the difference in the pay is lessened because the Special Agents end with a bigger pay per hour, but the Forensic Analysts have one more hour of work per day. International Super Spies can Raid the Criminal Warehouse, whilst Dynamic DNA Profilers can run Forensic Analyzes, which plays out like Hacking.
