I am a Detective with the State of NJ and i have a degree in Administration of Justice. I have training in Computer Forensics through the NJRCFL and the NW3C Schools.
Am i still a good candidate for a Computer Forensics Job or do i need to have a Computer Sciense degree?

In this market you will almost assuredly need a degree, in part because the market is flooded with recent grads in CF. However your experience will make you a great candidate.

As an example (since you are at the RCFL), if you wanted to make the jump from TFO to CART you would need a degree that includes 20 hours of computer science, math, etc. See the following job listing:
w w w . usajobs . gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/318017800#qualifications

Also most of the jobs that I see posted on this and other sites all seem to include some semblance of the following: Bachelors Degree in computer science or related field or Preferred: Bachelor's, Computer Engineering and/or Computer Science and/or Electrical Engineering and/or Information Technology or equivalent experience.
