A crime scene investigator oversees complex crime scene investigations, including homicides, sexual assaults, armed robberies, home invasions, and property crimes such as burglaries. Most of a crime scene investigators time is spent processing crime scenes, packaging and transporting evidence, attending and photographing autopsies and attending briefings and conferences with the police agencies requesting assistance. The remaining time is spent preparing investigative reports, testifying in court, receiving continuing education, and instructing classes and maintaining equipment in a state of readiness.
