It’s not like the TV shows…but better. Once training is completed and you are working your own cases, it’s like being the CEO of your own forensic agency. It’s a good career for those interested in science, technology, and law enforcement. With management support, you should be provided appropriate supervision, mentoring, on-the-job training and refresher training to maintain best practices. You should be encouraged to network and share information with your peers and join professional organizations. A good quality assurance program should be in place as well as standard operating procedures for examinations. Good management will make the job a rewarding experience.
