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.

AnswerWRONG--> absolutely not....a police officer many times is a crime scene investigator on his own...maybe not murders but burglaries, car larcenies, etc.....college cannot give you what you need to know to be a good crime scene investigator...only experience with criminals and the scenes themselves can give you what you need...You have to go to college to become a crime scene investigator because you need a degree in criminal justice and forensic science.
