How do you become a Crime Scene Technician?

Updated Louisville, Kentucky

I have been trying to figure out the real steps to becoming part of the Criminal Justice area, but I would really like to focus on gathering evidence, investigation, etc. However, I do not want to go on the path of a patrol/police officer in order to obtain this job. Is there a path I can take without becoming an officer, but still becoming a Crime Scene Technician?

First you need to get some knowledge of the area and community colleges such as Alvin Community College has a Crime Scene Technician Certificate in which is 27 hours (9 classes) However, you can check on job listings such as a Crime Scene Cleanup Technician which some just require for you to have a High School diploma/GED
