Crime Scene Search

    A Crime Scene Investigator plays a critical role in solving the mystery that often surrounds a crime.  By bringing life to the silent witness, physical evidence, a Crime Scene Investigator's ability to collect and process evidence can determine not only a suspect, but help successfully prosecute this criminal.

Crime Scene Investigation is not always as it is portrayed on television, but it is a challenging, technical and ever changing career.
