When you think of chemistry, you think of labs, mixing and separating compounds, test tubes, and perhaps an explosion or two. However, most people do not think of one of the most important areas where chemistry and its uses are most important: law enforcement and public service.

Thanks to the Indian Hill Public Schools Foundation, four local professionals who use chemistry every day in their law enforcement careers presented an overview of their jobs to high school students. They covered the basics of what their jobs entail; educational and other requirements for the job; the various skills needed to succeed; and other fascinating information.

Huge thanks to Steve Ashbrock, Chief of the Madeira/Indian Hill Joint Fire District; Brian Dearborn, Assistant Chief of the Indian Hill Rangers; Dr. Lakshmi Sammarco, Hamilton County Coroner (and parent); and Rob Warfel, FBI Special Agent (plus IH alum and parent) for sharing your expertise and fascinating stories!
