Forensic Consultants
     Consultants have an area of expertise that does not apply to every scene.  This person could be someone who focuses on Forensic Entomology or Forensic Anthropology or Psychology.  They are called in as needed.  This means that they need to be able to testify in court on their findings in a reliable and competent manner.  They need to be able to work with Law Enforcement Guidelines.  They need to have many valid years of doing their job to support their testimony with the weight of experience.

     Traits of typical, well sought after experts:  Highly educated in a specialized field, several years job experience practicing their craft, calm and reliable under intense scrutiny, and, oftentimes, a willingness to travel to other areas to consult.
