Program Planning Guide

Crime scene technician certificate programs are targeted education options that focus on the skills needed to get an entry-level job with a local, county, or state law enforcement program. This certificate will include coursework on how to properly process a crime scene, including establishing chains of custody for evidence, identifying potential materials for analysis, and taking crime scene photos, identifying footwear and tire imprints and recognition trace evidence. Crime scene technicians must have a keen eye for detail and patience as the job has a high degree of unpredictability.

Students on track to receive a crime scene technician certificate are focused on using a particular methodology from various sources to compile accurate information and patterns to support law enforcement decisions.
