My son in law was in banking/mortgage industry, but was always interested in LE. With two of his best friends, his brother, and his father in law entrenched in LE, he had a good idea of what he was getting into. He was making more money before the economy tanked, but always had an interest. His area of the industry tanked about a year before everyone else, and he was able to get hired relatively soon. He has been a police officer almost five years now, and loves what he is doing.
