Auburn Hills Campus

The Criminal Justice – Crime Scene Investigation program is designed to prepare students with essential knowledge and experience relative to forensic and analytical concepts applied to criminal investigations. Students will apply forensic science methods and investigative procedures for the documentation, preservation, and examination of crime scenes and related evidence. Additional program competencies focus on the criminal justice system, criminal laws, and criminal evidence procedures.

Graduation fulfills the entrance requirements for the Basic Police Academy at OCC.

Note: Completion of the basic police academy is required to become a sworn law enforcement officer.

Graduates choosing not to pursue sworn law enforcement officer status may be eligible for entry-level employment as civilian crime scene technicians. Graduates who desire employment as a forensic scientist/analyst in a forensic crime laboratory or private forensic laboratory will require additional higher education and are encouraged to discuss options with an OCC counselor.
