[ISP] Forensic Scientist Honored for 35 Years of Service
Start Date: 4/23/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 4/23/2014
Entry Description
Today the Indiana State Police recognized Forensic Scientist William Bowles from the Evansville Regional Laboratory for his 35 years of dedicated service to the department and the citizens of Indiana. Major Steve Holland, Commander of the Indiana State Police Laboratory Division, presented Bowles a 35 year certificate on behalf of Superintendent Doug Carter.

Bowles is a native of Berea, KY, and a 1967 graduate of Berea Foundation High School. He later attended Berea College where he graduated in 1971 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry.

Bowles started his forensic science career with the Indiana State Police in April 1979 and was the very first forensic scientist hired to work at the Evansville Regional Laboratory, which serves all law enforcement agencies in southern Indiana. His primary responsibility is analyzing drugs (controlled substances). During the first several years after opening the laboratory, Bowles was responsible for guiding tours and speaking to numerous college and high school groups about the new facility. He was also responsible for training new analysts. During his career, Bowles has testified as an expert witness in over 500 criminal trials.

“Bowles is the most conscientious forensic analyst I have had the privilege of working with over my 35 year career in forensic science. The excellent reputation of the Evansville Regional Laboratory was earned in large part by the sacrifices and contributions made by Bowles,” said Joe Vetter, Manager of the Evansville Regional Lab.

Bowles and his wife, Linda, reside in Vanderburgh County and they have two children.
