Health & Science Sector

Away from the hustle and bustle of the police station or the courthouse is the other wing of the criminal justice world:  the science.  Falling under this umbrella are the forensic scientists glamorized by shows such as CSI and Law & Order.  Although not quite based upon real techniques and timelines, these shows do emphasize the importance of science in criminology.  From the testing of DNA to the analysis of medical practices to the safehandling of biohazardous materials, these careers below pack a punch without needing to pack a gun.
