About the Bureau of Investigation
The San Diego County District Attorney’s Bureau of Investigation is comprised of approximately 125 investigators whose law enforcement authority comes from Penal Code section 830.1, the same section as a Deputy Sheriff or City Police Officer. What is unique about our law enforcement team is that they come to us from other law enforcement agencies as experienced investigators from their first day of work. Most come from our local law enforcement partners. However, several received their investigative experience from a state or federal agency. They have all completed the regular basic POST academy and have an Advanced POST certificate, they are also required to meet ongoing training mandates set forth by the Peace Officers Standards of Training (POST).
The San Diego DA's Office is continuously seeking experienced and qualified investigators to fill the position of DAI. To learn more about the Bureau of Investigations and the requirements to become a DAI, please visit: http://www.sdcda.org/office/boi/investigator-jobs.html
