Forensic Support Sections

Our forensic support units review and support our Crime Laboratory's functions.

Case Management Unit

Our Case Management Unit is our Crime Laboratory's main point of contact with outside agencies. We handle casework assignment and documentation for several of our units. We also respond to many discovery requests, except for alcohol testing discovery and postmortem toxicology discovery.

Quality Assurance Unit

Our Quality Assurance Unit oversees our labs' accreditation requirements. We ensure that each of our labs adhere to set standards. Our review process includes:

  • Yearly internal audits

  • Correction and prevention measures

  • Skill testing

  • Risk assessment

Our unit also coordinates all outside accreditation testing.

Evidence Control Unit

Our Evidence Control Unit provides support to all our Crime Laboratory units. Our unit:

  • Reviews all items submitted to our labs for testing

  • Stores, packages, and transports items, following set standards

  • Electronically tracks items using the Laboratory Information Management System
