Welcome to Forensic Junkie! 

My Story

My name is Brandie Valeri and I am the owner and operator of Forensic Junkie. I am a former Law Enforcement Officer and Crime Scene Investigator from Wisconsin. I have over17 years employment in public safety. Although I've been privileged to hold many roles, my passion was always in forensics! I am a Certified Senior Crime Scene Analyst (CSCSA) through the International Association for Identification (IAI) and want to continue to support the growth of forensics and crime scene investigation in Wisconsin. I am an adjunct instructor at a local technical college and love sharing my knowledge of evidence with new crime scene investigators. I currently work in law enforcement software and love being able to support departments all over the country. Although my full time job is no longer in forensics, I am continuing my education and experimentation within the field. 

I plan to use this website to help further eduction within the field and assist crime scene investigators with obtaining certification through the IAI - so stay tuned for more content soon!

In addition to being a source of education and networking I'm so excited to offer law enforcement and forensics themed products. I am a self taught designer (Thanks YouTube!) and I'm constantly learning. I have had the privilege to design patches and clothing for my prior department. If you're an agency looking for assistance with this, please don't hesitate to reach out! I've spent years crafting for myself, friends and family and I cannot wait to share my law enforcement and forensic specialty handmade items with you! 


I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect!!
