On February 11, 2009, the Department of State Police Forensic Services Group received system-wide accreditation from the American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors/Laboratory Accreditation Board ( ASCLD/LAB ). The Forensic Services Group (formerly known as the State Police Crime Laboratory) performs such scientific tests as DNA analysis and controlled substance testing, was previously accredited by the ASCLD/LAB in 2002, and was re-accredited in 2007. A re-organization of the State Police Forensic Services Group in 2007 placed all forensic entities under a single director and enabled the State Police to accredit the additional forensic disciplines. All forensic work being done by Massachusetts State Police, whether conducted by civilian scientists or state troopers, has been determined to meet the rigorous external standards of the American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors.
