Ground Broken on $36 Million Denver Police Crime LabApr 12, 2011
Ground has been broken on the new Denver Police crime lab which should be complete by mid-2012. The new facility will be four times as large as the previous space and allow the Denver Crime Laboratory Bureau to bring all of its units to a single location.
The $36 million state-of-the-art police crime lab will connect to the police administration complex, and will have a secure connection between the lab and the Denver Evidence Bureau. It will even have space for on-site vehicle examinations that were previously conducted off-site.
The Denver Crime Lab Bureau performs crime scene investigation, forensic chemistry and trace evidence analysis, firearms and toolmark analysis, latent printsanalysis, forensic imaging and video and photographic analysis, forensic biology and DNA, quality assurance, and crime scene volunteer work.
