Baeleigh Andrae began her career with the Green Bay Police Department Forensic Unit nearly nine years ago. She was GBPD’s first civilian Forensic Specialist working alongside two sworn law enforcement officers and later played a significant role in adapting the unit from sworn to all civilian positions. Today, Baeleigh serves as the Lead Forensic Specialist of the unit.
She attended the University of Wisconsin Platteville, earning two bachelor’s degrees—Forensic Investigation and Criminal Justice. In the fall of 2022, Baeleigh earned Certified Crime Scene Analyst (CCSA) through the International Association for Identification. She continues her education by attending various training courses, such as fingerprint comparison and crime scene processing. Additionally, she actively researches new techniques.
Baeleigh’s favorite part of her job is processing the large variety of crime scenes she encounters, as no two are alike. She welcomes the challenge.
