Now THAT is how you trade in your uniform for a fancy suit and climb the ladder of the department escalator style.

That’s how you end up with microphones and a collection of members from the press in front of you as you break down the latest whodunit. By getting into the dirt when the dirt tries to run away, even if it means ending up with a little raspberry for your efforts.
