No. Forensic scientists work other places besides police laboratories. They work for federal, state and local government, forensic laboratories, medical examiners offices, hospitals, universities, toxicology laboratories, medical examiner/coroner offices, or as independent forensic science consultants...

I would say that you would have to join the police department. because you have to learn how to defend yourself because anything can happen. There are parts of the job that don't require field work, like a lab tech, they shouldn't need police training because they aren't in the field.
