– RE: Being a non-sworn officer

I am a non sworn CSI. It is made clear that we do no work that only a sworn officer can do. I never been asked to do any type of "police" work by the detective nor my supervisors. Now on the flip side, at least in North Carolina, when a sworn law enforcement officer ask for your assistance you get the same sworn powers as he does for that short amount of time. So if there is a time that there is trouble and and officers yells for my help I can do what ever a law enforcement officer would do to help that him / her.
