Fingerprint analyst

Requirements for fingerprint analysts depends on the type of fingerprint analyst. Fingerprint analysts that are not in a crime lab generally have a 4 year degree and a course on fingerprints.

Fingerprint analysts that work in a crime lab need a 4 year degree, usually in biology or chemistry. They have the fingerprint course and additional training on latent prints. Pay is not good but depends on the agency.

Fingerprint analysts in my state agency get $35,000 or so and crime lab fingerprint analysts get $45,000 or so. The work is repetitious and not very rewarding. I would not advise becoming a fingerprint analyst unless it is just to get your foot in the door and have aspirations of crime lab work.
