State To Formally Open Southeast Mass. Regional Crime Lab
Media are invited to attend the event and tour sections of the lab, which is located at 30 Riverside Drive in Lakeville. The event begins at 11 a.m.
The Southeast Sub-Lab houses State Police criminalists, ballisticians and crime scene services technicians who collect, process and analyze forensic and ballistics evidence crucial to solving crimes and providing justice to victims. Basing crime scene technicians, criminalists, and ballisticians who work on Southeastern Massachusetts cases in one location allows for more effective collaboration among the various forensic disciplines and faster processing of evidence. Additionally, the Sub-Lab allows Southeastern Massachusetts police departments to save time and resources by having a regional drop-off point for evidence they need analyzed.
An 11 a.m. speaking program will feature EOPPS Undersecretary for Forensic Services John Grossman, State Police Superintendent Col. Mark Delaney, Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O'Keefe, and DCAM Commissioner David Perini. Tours of the facility will begin following the speaking program.
