Don the detective hat, pack your magnifying glasses and get ready for a career that’s sure to promise a life of excitement and thrill.
But first, let us address the differences between criminal investigation, criminology and forensic sciences in brief. Criminal investigators are typically called to the scene of a crime in order to process the evidence.
