Candidates that cannot commit to this level of service should not apply as the time and costs associated with the development of this specialty position are exhaustive. 

Under the general direction of the Director of Forensic Science, the Reserve Forensic Technician performs technical work in the development, preservation and presentation of evidence relating to criminal activities.  Work is performed with limited supervision and requires that the duties be accomplished with a degree of independence and at level of responsibility where the employee must exercise considerable good judgment and individual initiative in the performance of assigned duties.
