It also demands applaudable discipline and the will to make things work. A degree of specialization is also required for certain positions but the same is not mandatory.

According to thebalance, “Forensic science technicians are the utility players of the forensic science field. They assist in the collection of evidence, conduct analysis and help investigate crime scenes.

They may also provide assistance to other forensic scientists and may serve as a liaison to other specialists.”
