i am confused about whether or not in all 50 states crime scene technicians have to be cops. i kno is PA where i live you have to be a cop to be a crime scene technician or CSI. what i want to know is whether or not this is true for all 50 states and if it isnt which states this is true for.
It is not really state to state if a person has to be sworn to be a CSI. It is agency to agency. I am in NC I work as a non sworn person. But my counterpart in another agency in town is sworn. There is going to be a trend where a lot of departments will start switching from sworn to non sworn CSIs.
