Positive Growth Trend
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the attacks of September 11 will increase the demand for police as well as other jobs in criminal justice. That makes this a great time to consider criminal justice programs. Another benefit of criminal justice jobs is the fact that employer-provided benefits are typically better among state and local government employees than among private sector workers. Furthermore, the U.S. Department of Labor predicts that by 2010, the demand for FBI Officers, Police Officers, Private Detectives, U.S. Customs Agents and those in other professional criminal justice jobs will grow by more than 29%.

Forensic Science
Forensic science (often shortened to forensics) is the application of a broad spectrum of sciences to answer questions of interest to the legal system. This may be in relation to a crime or to a civil action.
A forensic scientist is first a scientist. When he applies his scientific knowledge to assist juries, attorneys, and judges in understanding science, he is a forensic scientist. Forensic scientists are thinkers, good with details, good with putting pieces of a puzzle together, and curious. Some scientists work in laboratories and some also go out to places where crimes are committed (crime scenes). Others teach in colleges and universities.
There are six general areas of forensic science.
