Most forensics detectives work up from policeman, detective or military police positions. Bachelor or undergraduate degrees in criminology, or physical science, such as chemistry, biology and physics are a must. You must have strong personal skills, time management skills and work well with people. It takes alot of work and time to achieve this position.
