An AI is programmed and can't process something out of its system. This is when a detective or CSI comes in. Basically, a human can understand another human being the most.
AIs have more ability for thoughts, meaning they can run multiple outcomes at once to decide the best way to arrest the convict, in the least amount of time. Since AIs are supercomputers, they can expand their think far beyond the human mind, allowing for more correct convictions.
If AIs replaced detectives, we wouldn’t have to worry about paying the detectives, we already pay an IT guy so it would be easier and more affordable to call in an AI IT guy to do work, then to pay someone daily 9-5 even when they have no work to do.
AIs can render thoughts and ideas quicker than humans can think them, so if you need a crime report the AI has one completed before a human can even think of where to start, and AIs go more inadept then human, because they can store more knowledge, and retain it longer without losing fragments.
They do not have common sense and may not ever
The only occupations in this field that AI can replace in the future ( if the robots look human and can blend in ). The detectives who investigate cheating spouses and similar detectives are the ones who will most likely lose their jobs, homicide and organized crime detectives will never be replaced.
