Fullerton PD’s CSI team helps put the crime scene puzzle together with detailed work
By Jessica Peralta-Behind the Badge
It was in Dawn B. Scruggs’ third year as a police dispatcher at Fullerton Police Department that she started getting curious about CSI.
Having already worked for Hawthorne Police Department as a police and fire dispatcher for eight years, she had and still has the utmost respect for police dispatchers as “the heartbeat of the department,” but she wanted to know the outcome of those calls and see them through the justice system.
“Since I have such a healthy interest in justice and seeing the puzzle come together, I needed more,” says Scruggs, now a forensic specialist II who has been working in Fullerton PD’s CSI department since 2002.
“I don’t want to be in the position where I have to arrest the bad guy,” Scruggs says. “But I did want to see everything.”
She found the perfect fit in crime scene investigation.
