Tucson police facing Crime Scene Unit shortage

An Arizona city is looking for recruits to join its police department's Crime Scene Unit.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that John Neeley, identification superintendent for the Tucson Police Department, says recent retirements and promotions have left the unit open to hiring five civilian technicians.

Skills needed: strong photography skills and cast-iron stomachs.

Neeley, a former news photographer, says previous forensic experience is not necessary, but skills with a camera are important.

An information meeting for prospective employees will held Monday evening at the main police station downtown.
