Maybe that opinion comes from regular LE. In which case it's similar to the way LE looks at FWS Enforcement. They're not that good at detective work but many of them are excellent trackers, and I don't mean just shoe impressions. IN BP, like FWS LE, it maybe that tracking is more valuable than typical police work. Mostly speculation.
Perhaps it has to do with pay scale (??) and the solitary work environment... I'm sure you're right about regular LE. Hollywood's portrayal doesn't help much either...
