CSI Expert, David Bachert

David Bachert began his law enforcement career on February 25th, 1991, when he was hired by the City of Allentown Police Department and was part of the 47th Academy Class. He served as Sergeant at Arms for his class. Upon graduation, he was assigned to the 4th platoon as a Patrolman. During that time, he attended multiple training seminars including the IPMBA course and became a certified Bicycle Patrol Officer.

David then transferred to the Center City Bike Patrol Division, which eventually led him into Community Policing. He spent several years re-enforcing the bond between police and the community. He later returned to the 4th platoon as he sought to return to regular police work and an opportunity to enter the K9 program.

David certified as a K9 decoy and assisted several departments with training. When an opening was presented for the Evidence Unit, he submitted his interest and was transferred shortly after. During his time within the unit, he was promoted to Evidence Unit Supervisor. He ran the evidence unit until his initial retirement opportunity. Circumstances allowed him to remain in active duty for up to five more years, so he opted to finish his career back on the street as a Patrol Supervisor (Sergeant) for the 1st platoon.

After retirement, Sergeant Bachert continued in public safety, taking a position as a Public Safety Officer at Lehigh Carbon Community College. He then moved to Florida, where he worked as a Campus Security Officer for the University of South Florida, an Emergency Dispatcher for the City of Punta Gorda Police Department, and Campus Security for the Sarasota County School District. He is currently the Director of CSI and Security at Kellyco in Tennessee.

He is always seeking to expand on his training, which up to now includes:
