Crime Scene Unit


Click Play Above

Everyone always asks about the Crime Scene Unit (TV watchers might know it as CSI). This is a very tight group of officers that work hand in hand to solve a case. They are part of the Homicide Division. This is a very interesting and unique job within the police department. After you patrol the streets for a couple of years, maybe you can become part of "CSI Houston". Apply today at and start your career toward this goal or one of the many other positions within the Houston Police Department.

Say, Officer McCoy.. For someone who applies online, what's the typical wait time to hear from a recruiter? I really like the idea of being CSI: Houston. Went ahead and got the process started online, just had a couple of questions. Great job again!

Thanks for applying. You will love being a Houston Police Officer. Usually it takes about one week to be contacted once you have applied online.

Hi officer McCoy...I am currently going to school for criminal justice. I want to get into homicide, but is it true that i would have to be a police officer before getting into homicide?
