The California Department of Consumer Affairs’ (DCA) Division of Investigation (DOI) serves as the law enforcement arm of DCA.
DOI protects California consumers and licensees by investigating violations of California’s law, regulations and professional standards.
Established in 1961, DOI provides law enforcement investigative services that focus on consumer protection for the boards, bureaus, programs, committees, and commissions within DCA.
DOI is unique from other law enforcement units because of the type of work assigned and how that work is executed. Additionally, DOI appreciates what is most important to their employees and promotes a healthy work-life balance that does not include rotating assignments and rarely includes evenings or weekends.
Additional advantages of becoming a DOI investigator include:
- A state vehicle for on-duty use
- Specialized training and assignments
- Peace officer safety retirement and access to 401(k) and 457 retirement plans
- A competitive salary and longevity pay
- Paid holidays, vacation and sick leave
- Education incentive and career advancement
- Comprehensive benefits
For individuals at the beginning or middle portion of the career ladder, including those considering a second career, DOI may be the right fit for you.
