Forensic Analysis and Fee Schedule

Forensic DNA analysis provides information that can expedite investigations, eliminate innocent suspects, and convict guilty criminals. DNA evidence helps to assure justice in the criminal justice system.

The technology is becoming an increasingly crucial tool in collecting evidence that assists investigators, prosecutors, and defense attorneys during all phases of a criminal investigation and trial.

Unfortunately, many state forensic laboratories are overwhelmed with backlogged DNA samples. We believe that poses a serious problem for the criminal justice system.
