Salary: $66,518 - $99,195
Final Filing Date: April 3, 2017
Forensic Scientists in the Latent Print Comparative Section (LPCS) are responsible for the analysis and comparison of latent prints recovered from crime scenes and evidentiary items, formulating conclusions, and presenting those conclusions in both a written format and oral testimony as an expert witness. Forensic Scientist IVs in the LPCS are also responsible for supervising a squad within the Section, assisting the Section Supervisor in planning day-to-day operations, and other duties as assigned.
The fundamental reason this classification exists is to apply the physical sciences to the investigation of crimes by performing laboratory analyses on physical evidence. A Forensic Scientist IV is required to maintain and demonstrate proficiency in the field or fields of forensic science in which case work is analyzed. This is a senior, professional classification that represents the fourth level in the Forensic Scientist class series. A Forensic Scientist IV supervises and trains Forensic Scientists I, II, and III in advanced case work and legal aspects of evidence evaluation and executes administrative duties within an assigned laboratory section. The incumbent must be qualified to appear in court as an expert witness. Supervision is exercised over Forensic Scientists I, II, and III. This classification is distinguished from a Forensic Science Section Supervisor who has full administrative and supervisory responsibility for one or more sections. Supervision is received from a Forensic Science Section Supervisor, Crime Laboratory Administrator, or other supervisor, and work is reviewed through reports and results achieved.
