Celebrating Women’s Contributions in Forensic Science: Sedgwick County Regional Forensic Science Center

Breaking down stereotypes: How a woman is excelling in the male-dominated field of firearms examination

Dr. Steadman stated that the center currently has a total of 43 employees, with 34 of them being women. Sara Rogers, who works as a Firearms Examiner at the center, spoke about how gun enthusiasts are often viewed as men, but she took on the role with expertise. As a Firearms Examiner, Rogers’ main responsibility is to analyze ammunition components in order to determine if they were discharged by a specific firearm. Despite not growing up in a state with relaxed firearm regulations and not having a personal passion for firearms, Rogers now carries out her duties efficiently. She acknowledged that working with firearms is her job and she performs it professionally.
