    I worked at LAPD full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Interesting job with great benefits and good pay.

    Cons

    Do not expect to be able to able to freely think outside the box. You will be expected to adhere to strict protocols, some of which are a bit antiquated. Technology within this field is changing very rapidly, and while the newer employees appear to embrace this change, management tends to resist it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If this lab had a small group of scientists dedicated specifically to research and validation of new, cutting-edge protocols, I think this could easily become one of the top crime labs in the country.
