Kentucky State Police

Crime Lab Intern

June - July 2019 • Newport, KY

What I liked

I liked listening to the experience and background of everyone who worked in the lab. They told me what to look out for, what the future of forensic lab work is going to be and what they would do differently if they could do it again. I was also able to have hands on experience, helping calibrate equipment, make standard solutions, and even run a few practice cases.

What I wish was different

I wish i had more time to work with the analysts. Whike i was able to spend a lot of time with them and do something every day. The lab was in the process of hiring new staff so their primary focus was on completing casework while hiring new applicants and i was left with some downtime.


Always ask about the background of the people who work with you, how long they have been there and what they are looking to do in the future.
