Six altogether four for BS and two criminal justice degree you must serve 8 years before you can becomee a crime scene investigator The above answer is some what silly, as it does not provide a correct reply to the question. A Police officer may attend a special course to learn the BASICS of crime scene work. BUT a college course of at lesat two years would be much better preperation, and would get you a position sooner than a basic course at some state Police academy that lasted a few weeks. Forensic science is exacting and precise. If you are not that kind of person, take a pass.
being a crime scene investigator takes hands on learning usually associated with being a law enforcement officer, and becoming a crime scene investigator. You can get degrees in most science areas and become a criminologist working in a lab obtaining results on things such as DNA and other evidence submitted by law enforcement affiliates. Generally though it will take working in an actual police department to then gain the experience needed to be a crime scene investigator. there are a lot of short term occupational programs that you can enroll in. A great one is LA PUENTE VALLEY REGIONAL OCCUPATIONAL CENTER. They offer a hands on forensic science academy that would give you a great start in gaining the skills you need to enter into the crime scene investigating career field.
Honestly, it depends where you go to school at and where you want to work. I'm currently in school to be a crime scene investgator. I've been here for three years and I'm graduating this month. After I graduate, I'm going to the police academy because where I plan on working, the CSIs have to be police officers first; crime scene is considered to be a specialized field. Plus, there are many aspects to crime scene. If you want to be in the feild or a lab tech, your school time and classes will vary.
At least a 4 year degree in forensic science, or criminology, or similar qualifications. The days of cops doing that job are about done, unless you want to work for some really small town department, as the Crime Scene guy.Any good quality Police service will have more applicants than they need, so be prepared to go a long way, in the USA, to get that first job.
they would defend themselves by using solid evidence they have collected throughout there investigation. Evidence must be creditable to accept in the court of law. Crime scene investigators in order to maintain reliability must be certain and take every step of collecting evidence seriously. In this factor, experts also used to defend evidence findings from a crime scene. As long as the proper steps taken to collect the evidence to be able to test it then the crime scene investigator has done his or her job. The steps that would fir protocol are chain of custody is the evidence discovered the chain of custody starts. This would include who discovered and collected the evidence where it discovered and how it collected with the time and date. You have the photographs evidence for the location of the crime scene. Where the evidence located on the crime scene and objects that may be of use as evidence. There is the collection of the evidence, which as long as the guidelines followed to the last letter and times and dates put on the package without contamination then the evidence presented in court. The evidence put in a controlled environment until trial. There is the expert witness testimony, which used to defend the evidence creditability and how it relates to the trial. The expert witness can explain the findings of the evidence to show it is link to the defendant in the case.
A Major in Criminology would take about the 4 standard years in college not counting additional degrees (about 2 years each?) if you were interested in becoming a forensics specialist. Any other outside courses you want to take such as attending Police Academy would also be added on. I doubt you would be entered as a crime investigator at entry level, so experience would be required until you get promoted unless you take the time to become a forensics specialist in college.
First, isolate the crime scene so that evidence located within can be preserved. Second, do not touch or move anything, unless there's a life threatening situation. Third, if something needs to be moved, make a record of it. Fourth, take steps to secure the area from curious people. Fifth, take precise notes of time and events as they occur. Sixth, establish a safe walk area for additional officers that will be arriving. Seventh, the crime scene officer is responsible for the security of the crime scene until an investigation officer arrives. Lastly, try to remain on the scene as long as possible.
