NEW GRANT TO AID SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT IN DNA CRIME ANALYSIS

 

September 12, 2013 (San Diego’s East County) – A new, $379,379 federal grant will help the County Sheriff’s Department expedite its DNA crime analysis.

The Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to appropriate the funding, which comes from the Department of Justice’s 2013 DNA Backlog Reduction Program. The money is aimed at cutting into the number of pending DNA cases being processed by the Sheriff’s Regional Crime Laboratory.
