The Madison Police Department recently welcomed Jiaqi "Max" Lu, who will be working with the department as an intern this summer.
Lu, who is from Pu Dong District of Shanghai, China, is majoring in forensic science and investigations, Madison Police Chief Jack Drumm said recently, while introducing Lu to the Madison Board of Police Commissioners.
While working as an intern, Lu will be focused in part on researching bank robbery investigation techniques, Drumm said. "And we've had practice with that here," Drumm said. The most recent bank robbery in Madison was in November of last year and a suspect was apprehended and charged in December.
"We should wish him a boring summer," First Selectman Fillmore McPherson quipped.
Drumm said Lu would wear civilian clothing while serving as a intern with the department and that the department is looking forward to working with him because of his expertise in fraud and because of his access to law enforcement and forensic experts at the University of New Haven.
"It's a natural partnership," Drumm said.
