Dr. Susan Breeland Luberoff may not be from or live in Kershaw County, but she has helped county and municipal law enforcement agencies here change the way child abuse and sexual assault cases are investigated for nearly 30 years. Luberoff’s focus has been on the forensics of such cases -- the collecting and processing of evidence by medical personnel and translating that work into language and processes members of law enforcement can use in their investigations. A Lexington County resident, Luberoff is a pediatrician and long-time faculty member at the University of South Carolina’s (USC) department of pediatrics who has known Camden Police Chief Joe Floyd for about 45 years.
