>> HI, I'M ACTING CITY MANAGER
ED ZUERCHER.
HERE AT THE CITY OF PHOENIX WE
HAVE 15,000 DEDICATED EMPLOYEES
WHO WORK HARD EVERY DAY TO SERVE
THE PUBLIC IN A VARIETY OF JOBS.
ONE OF THE PLACES THAT IS VERY
INTERESTING FOR THE CITY IS OUR
STATE-OF-THE-ART CRIME LAB,
AND WE'RE HERE TODAY TO TALK TO
FORENSIC SCIENTIST LAURA ALZUBI
ABOUT THE WORK SHE DOES FOR THE
CITIZENS OF PHOENIX HERE AT THE
CRIME LAB.
HI, LAURA.
>> HI, HOW ARE YOU?
>> GOOD.
THANKS FOR JOINING ME.
SO, YOU'RE A FORENSIC SCIENTIST.
TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT
SORT OF BACKGROUND YOU NEED TO
HAVE THIS JOB THAT YOU HAVE
HERE.
>> WELL, RIGHT NOW AT THE
LABORATORY YOU NEED TO HAVE A
BACHELOR'S OF SCIENCE.
TYPICALLY THAT'S WHAT THEY ARE
LOOKING FOR.
I HAVE A BACHELOR'S IN MOLECULAR
BIOLOGY FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF
ARIZONA, AND I HAVE BEEN WORKING
AT THE LABORATORY FOR EIGHT
YEARS.
>> SO TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT
WHAT YOUR DAILY WORK IS.
WHAT DO YOU DO EVERY DAY HERE IN
THE CRIME LAB?
>> SO IN THE LABORATORY THERE
ARE EIGHT SECTIONS OF THE
LABORATORY, AND I WORK IN THE
LATENT PRINT COMPARATIVE
SECTION.
I LOOK AT EVIDENCE THAT HAS BEEN
COLLECTED FROM CRIME SCENES,
AS WELL AS OTHER TYPES OF
EVIDENCE THAT CONTAIN
FINGERPRINT IMPRESSIONS.
SO IF THERE'S A FINGERPRINT
IMPRESSION COLLECTED AT THE
CRIME SCENE AND WE HAVE AN
INVESTIGATIVE LEAD, WE CALL THAT
A MANUAL COMPARISON WHERE WE'RE
COMPARING AN UNKNOWN PRINT TO A
KNOWN PRINT.
OFTENTIMES, MORE OFTENTIMES,
THE LATENT PRINT COLLECTED AT
THE CRIME SCENE DOES NOT HAVE
ANY INVESTIGATIVE LEAD, AND,
THEREFORE, WE WOULD PUT THAT
FINGERPRINT INTO OUR AUTOMATED
SYSTEM CALLED AFIS, AND AFIS
IS THE AUTOMATED FINGERPRINT
IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM.
WE CODE THE LATENT.
WE PUT IT THROUGH THE SYSTEM.
AND THE SYSTEM WILL BRING BACK A
POTENTIAL LIST OF CANDIDATES FOR
US TO COMPARE.
ASIDE FROM THOSE TWO MAIN
FUNCTIONS THAT I DO EVERY DAY,
I DO TESTIFY IN THE JUDICIAL
SYSTEM WHEN CALLED UPON TO
PRESENT MY FINDINGS, AND I ALSO
GO OUT AND DO SOME OUTREACH
PROGRAMS FOR THE CITY OF
PHOENIX... SCHOOLS, OTHER
MEMBERS OF THE PHOENIX POLICE
DEPARTMENT, AS WELL AS OTHER
MEMBERS OF THE LABORATORY.
>> SO YOU'RE A SCIENTIST, BUT
YOU'RE ALSO A CITY EMPLOYEE.
WHEN YOU WERE GETTING YOUR
DEGREE, DID YOU THINK ABOUT
WORKING FOR THE CITY OR FOR A
LOCAL GOVERNMENT?
WAS THAT SOMETHING YOU THOUGHT
ABOUT?
>> I ACTUALLY THOUGHT ABOUT THAT
IN THE BACK OF MY MIND, THAT
THAT WOULD BE GREAT TO DO.
I DO KNOW THAT IT'S VERY
CHALLENGING TO GET THOSE TYPES
OF POSITIONS.
SO I TRIED TO DO EVERYTHING THAT
I COULD IN ORDER TO KIND OF GET
MY FOOT IN THE DOOR.
>> NOW, WE SEE "CSI" ON TV,
AND ON "CSI", THEY HAVE ONE CASE
AND THEY WORK IT AND IT'S ONE
HOUR AND IT'S DONE.
I'M GUESSING THAT'S NOT HOW IT
IS HERE FOR YOU.
HOW MANY CASES MIGHT YOU HAVE
GOING AT ONE TIME?
>> I HAVE QUITE A LARGE CASE
LOAD.
EVERY CASE IS SO DIFFERENT.
SO YOU MIGHT HAVE ONE CASE THAT
HAS ONE LATENT PRINT, AND YOU
MIGHT HAVE ANOTHER CASE THAT HAS
A HUNDRED LATENT PRINTS
COLLECTED OFF OF ONE ITEM,
SUCH AS A VEHICLE.
SO IT'S VERY, VERY DIFFERENT.
I TYPICALLY CAN DO PROBABLY
ANYWHERE FROM 50 TO 80 AFIS
CASES A MONTH, AND TECHNICALLY
PROBABLY ABOUT 10 COMPARATIVE
CASES A MONTH, JUST DEPENDING ON
THE LEVEL OF COMPLEXITY IN THE
CASE AND HOW MANY PEOPLE I
ACTUALLY HAVE TO COMPARE THE
LATENTS TO.
>> SO IT'S A LITTLE DIFFERENT
FROM "CSI"?
>> DEFINITELY DIFFERENT FROM
"CSI".
>> ALL RIGHT.
AND THEN AS YOU THINK ABOUT
OTHER THINGS YOU LIKE TO DO IN
THE LAB, WHAT OTHER JOBS IN THE
LAB ARE OF INTEREST?
>> YOU KNOW, I REALLY LOVE ALL
AREAS OF FORENSIC SCIENCE.
I FEEL LIKE EVERY SINGLE PART OF
FORENSIC SCIENCE IS SO
INTERESTING.
MY BACKGROUND IS IN MOLECULAR
BIOLOGY, SO I DO FIND INTEREST
IN THE FORENSIC BIOLOGY SECTION.
HOPEFULLY MAYBE ONE DAY THE
LABORATORY WILL ALLOW SOME CROSS
TRAINING, BUT AS FOR RIGHT NOW
I AM A FINGERPRINT EXPERT, AND I
REALLY DO ENJOY WHAT I'M DOING.
>> AND LAST QUESTION WITHOUT
GIVING AWAY ANY SECRET DETAILS,
ANY INTERESTING TYPES OF CASES
YOU'VE HAD IN YOUR CAREER
DEALING WITH FINGERPRINTS OR
ANYTHING ELSE?
>> I DEAL WITH INTERESTING CASES
EVERY SINGLE DAY.
I MEAN, IT'S REMARKABLE WHAT YOU
CAN FIND A LATENT PRINT OFF OF.
I'VE IDENTIFIED AN INDIVIDUAL'S
FINGER ON ITEMS SUCH AS A
WRAPPER, A STRAW WRAPPER,
ASHTRAYS.
I BELIEVE SOMEONE'S EVEN LIFTED
A PRINT OFF OF HUMAN SKIN.
SO, YOU KNOW, OBVIOUSLY,
WEAPONS, KNIVES, GUNS.
ALL KINDS OF DIFFERENT THINGS.
SO, YOU KNOW, IT JUST GOES TO
SHOW THAT YOU CAN LEAVE BEHIND
THIS LITTLE PIECE OF FRICTION
SKIN THAT CAN BE IDENTIFIED TO
AN INDIVIDUAL, AND A LOT OF
PEOPLE DON'T REALIZE HOW LITTLE
WE NEED TO ACTUALLY MAKE THAT
DETERMINATION.
>> AND I'M GUESSING THERE'S A
LOT OF SATISFACTION BEING PART
OF THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM
KNOWING YOU ARE BRINGING JUSTICE
FOR THE PEOPLE OF PHOENIX.
>> YES, IT'S AMAZING.
AND I REALLY DO LOVE WORKING FOR
THE CITY OF PHOENIX.
IT'S A GREAT COMMUNITY.
I LOVE WORKING AT THE
LABORATORY.
WE'RE ALL VERY PROFESSIONAL HERE
AND HAVE A VERY HIGH STANDARD OF
INTEGRITY.
IT MAKES MY JOB REALLY
WORTHWHILE.
>> WELL, GREAT.
THANKS FOR SHARING WITH US
TODAY.
>> THANK YOU.
>> SO THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF ONE
OF THE JOBS IN THE CITY OF
PHOENIX.
WE'LL BE BRINGING THOSE TO YOU
OVER THE COMING MONTHS.
15,000 CITY EMPLOYEES WORKING
HARD TO SERVE THE RESIDENTS OF
PHOENIX.
FOR "ON THE JOB", I'M ACTING
CITY MANAGER ED ZUERCHER.
