NEW ORLEANS – After nearly 20 years of working in forensic laboratory management and education, Shreveport native Trey Green was looking to apply his expertise in a leadership role with an agency looking to grow in the ever-evolving field.
Green found such a position with the NOPD, joining the department as its new civilian crime lab director in January.
“I felt that with my unique perspective, I could bring something to the table in an organization that was growing and entering the new age of forensics where DNA study was becoming much more advanced and where crime was increasing,” he said.
Green’s unique perspective includes working with the Louisiana State Police’s crime lab in Baton Rouge and the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office Crime Lab in Slidell, as well as military experience in the U.S. Navy and in education and sales. Along with his extensive work experience, Green holds a Bachelor of Science degree in animal sciences from Louisiana Tech University and a Master’s degree in forensic sciences from LSU.
