Where do I start?

The best place to begin a forensic science career is by contacting local agencies like coroner offices, medical examiner offices, police departments and crime laboratories, to inquire about internships and requirements for employment in forensic sciences. It is helpful to have some idea of which field you are interested in, since the educational and training requirements vary so much.
