FBI Agent Dwight E. Adams

Title

FBI Agent Dwight E. Adams

Description

Every bit of criminal investigation counts, and Dwight Adams made sure that forensic science counted all the more when he joined the Federal Bureau of Investigation Laboratory in 1987. He was head of the research team that dove into DNA, and after validation, this team became the first public crime laboratory to offer DNA testing for criminal casework. Adams himself would go on to be the first FBI Agent to testify in cases in which DNA evidence would be admitted in US Courts. His knowledge and knowhow of DNA led him to testify over 130 times in court. In 2002, his service allowed him to climb up the ranks as Assistant Director to the FBI and Director of the FBI Crime Lab. Later, he became the first Director of the University of Central Oklahoma Forensic Science Institute, and has helped build the campus to house the Forensic Science Institute which was used to teach his unique dual-degree Forensic Academic program.
