Introduction: Forensic science is a vital instrument for the detection or investigation of crime and the administration of justice, providing crucial information about the evidence found at crime scene, it is especially important that the training and education of forensic scientists provide a solid scientific background and a broad base in criminalistics. The validity of those results depends on the knowledge, skills, and experience of the forensic scientists working to obtain them. A forensic scientist must be capable of integrating knowledge and skills in the examination, analysis, interpretation, reporting, and testimonial support of evidence. Forensic Psychology is the application of psychology in the aid of legal investigation. Forensic psychology looks into the vast psychological perspectives and applies them to legal investigations including issues such as public policies, new laws, competency, and also the mental state of a defendant. Forensic psychologists are often depicted as criminal profilers who are able to almost psychically deduce a killer's next move. The field has witnessed dramatic growth in recent years, as more and more students become interested in this applied branch of psychology. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median hourly earnings of forensic science technicians are about $21.79 per hour and According to Web Resources- Salaries within forensic psychology can range greatly depending on the sector of employment, although most entry-level positions for those with a Ph.D. start out between $35,000 and $40,000 annually. Those in private practice who offer consulting services typically earn more.
