• Mr. Joe Peny

    Hello and welcome to Forensic Science. I have lived in Effingham County since 2004 and Bryan County prior. I was a police officer for eight years and an eleven year Army veteran. As a police officer, I specialized in digital forensics (the analysis of electronic devices) and worked with the Digital Forensics Unit at Armstrong State University. I have Master’s degrees in both Secondary Science and Criminal Justice and am Gifted and Talented Certified. During my time as an adjunct professor at Armstrong State University, I taught courses involving crime scene analysis, forensics, interrogations, and self defense just to name a few. I have two daughters, a son, and a grandson and a granddaughter. I enjoy playing both traditional golf and disc golf.
