Detective Stahl is an Intelligence Analyst for Delta region’s Detective & Investigations division. Reports from superiors state she is a “brilliant” and “tenacious” officer with a gift for identifying case-relevant insights in data (such as behavioral tendencies and criminal patterns).
Stahl’s expertise extends to the field. She is an excellent investigator and marksman. However, PolPsych evaluations suggest she dedicates much of her personal time to department work, “which may lead to an inappropriate work/life balance.” (Eval by Tilden, File #YM83-VS)
