I graduated with a bachelors degree in criminal justice with a focus on crime scene investigator a year and a half ago. I live in NY on Long Island; its very difficult for civilians to get into the police dept so I've applied to become a volunteer. Ultimately, I want to work as a CSI. I am willing to re-locate. Any suggestions? Help!! By the way, I have a ton of experience as a psychiatric nurse, a background as a teacher on the elementary and college levels. Am well preserved and have no intention of retiring.
I know that when I was looking (originally from NY) the farther south (below the Masion Dixie line) and the farther west I looked the more civilian CSI positions were available. I ultimately had to relocate as well, luckily I ended up in MD. Good Luck.
