About Pamela J. Schmidt
I have been in the Law Enforcement field for over 27 years. I started my career as a Telecommunications Operator and Trainer and then transferred to the position of Property & Evidence Specialist and Crime Scene Investigator where I have been for the latter part of my career. I have trained on many occasions with the Metro-Dade Police Department, the New York City Office of the Chief Medical Examiner as well as the FBI.
I have served on the Executive State Board of the Property & Evidence Association of Florida, Inc. (PEAF) for the past 13 years as the Conference Coordinator/Planner. I was also the Certification Chair, and still actively serve on as a member, to the Committee that formed the Evidence Specialist Certification Program when it started in 2013. This Committee of PEAF is instrumental in certifying Evidence Specialists throughout the State of Florida. As the Conference Planner for 13 years, each conference grew in attendance and vendors with every passing year.
I have lectured at several colleges on the various topics of Crime Scene and Evidence Packaging as well as numerous public appearances. I am also an Instructor at the Suncoast Technical College (STC) twice a year during their Police Academy training of new Law Enforcement Officers.
I gave a brief lecture at the New York City Office of the Chief Medical Examiner and was then invited to speak and gave three (3) presentations at the Washington State Association of Coroners and Medical Examiners (WACME) in May 2015.
The picture of me on the home page is me testifying in the Denise Amber Lee case - a high profile murder trial that was televised live on COURTV and ended in a guilty verdict. This case, through the leadership of Denise's widower Nathan, led to the passing of the Denise Amber Lee Law and the mandatory training of 911 Operators. This is one (1) of the cases that I have presented on multiple occasions as one (1) of the Crime Scene Investigators that helped work the multiple crime scenes in this case.
