Crime Scene Evidence The West Jordan Crime Scene Unit consists of two crime scene technicians who respond to various crime scenes throughout the city. Between the two of them, their educations include a Bachelor of Science Degree, a Forensic Science Degree and a Criminology and Corrections Certification. Their training also includes The Utah State Crime Scene Academy and National Forensic Academy. 

West Jordan Crime Scene Technicians are on call 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
