Crime scenes are full of physical evidence left behind by the criminal(s) responsible for the crime: fingerprints, hair, blood, semen, and other potentially incriminating proof. Crime scene technicians collect this valuable evidence from a crime scene by using latent fingerprint recovery, taking photographs, physical examination, and other methods. They must also preserve the physical integrity of the evidence and may coordinate with criminal investigators in the course of an investigation or with lawyers to provide testimony during a court case.
While crime scene technicians play a vital role in any criminal investigation and help to put away dangerous criminals, they must have particular qualifications. In addition to forensic and science training, crime scene technicians must have sufficient personal strength to deal with disturbing scenes on a daily basis.
