Guest Speaker
This writer introduced Det. Sgt. William Clary to the club. 16 years with Laconia PD, he normally supervises 4 other detectives. As a majority of there cases involve juveniles, they are lobbying for a special case worker. The bureau handles minor and major cases except homicides which are handled by the State Police. They are now able to process more evidence in-house before it is sent out to the state labs who are now capable of doing their own DNA testing. Clary demonstrated testing procedures including "fuming" articles for fingerprints which actually fix the prints using gaseous Super Glue. For more information go to
