OSBI Criminalist Awarded Top Honor

Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation Director DeWade Langley presented Erin Henry the Criminalist of the Year Award during the bureau’s annual Awards Banquet at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum December 14th.  Henry played a crucial role in ASCLD/LAB reaccreditation.  She represented the bureau to the inspection team as a dedicated professional, worked day and night to compile all the data necessary for the inspection, thereby lessening the time the team had to spend in OSBI laboratories.

Henry also spends much of her time researching and writing grants for the lab.  The grant money awarded to the bureau through Henry’s diligence has surpassed one million dollars.  She has also worked to streamline areas of the lab resulting in faster turnaround times and lower backlogs.  Erin Henry is an important asset to the bureau and the state of Oklahoma.
