“As an intern with the Washington D.C. Justice Program at American University, I worked with several criminal justice-related agencies from the Fingerprint Analysis Unit to the Cold Case Unit with the Forensic Consolidated Laboratory. This experience broadened my expertise in business and laboratory plans and practices as well as the basics in fingerprint analysis and responding to crime scene-related calls. I also assisted drug analysts who were being trained by the FBI, and contributed to several community events."
“I believe in what Martin Luther King said, ‘Intelligence plus character—that is the goal of true education.’ The only way school can prepare its students for the work environment is through teaching them respect, and the ability to think and analyze situations critically. In other words, Bay Path taught me how to adapt to different situations and a theoretical knowledge of the Criminal Justice system. My professors gave me the tools, and I had to apply them to the real world.”Elisabetta continues to work with the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department in the Consolidated Forensic Laboratory Unit.
