The term “forensic science” refers to any science used in a court of law. Forensic science is a vital part of the civil and criminal justice systems and is used to assist triers of fact in answering questions of causation and liability.
Certain types of forensic science have been popularized – and to some extent mythologized - by television shows and crime novels. Forensic science, however, encompasses much more than just DNA analysis or autopsies.
Many Police Departments are now requiring those they hire to be already "Certified"
As the competition increases between those trying to land a law enforcement job, many police and sheriff departments are taking the step of either requiring those who apply, or requiring those prior to being hired, to have graduated from a state certified law enforcement training academy
One of the most common
questions when applying for law enforcement jobs is how to
pass the background investigation. Many applicants either
get rejected or if they have been hired end up being
terminated because they either provided false information on
their background forms, or failed to disclose information.
That makes this even more unfortunate, especially for the applicant, is that had they been truthful with the information, that information would not have interfered with them getting hired. However, providing the false information was more serious than what they were trying to cover up.
