Forensic Analytical Crime Lab is available to assist clients with case inquiries, discovery review, consultations and limited time-sensitive evidence examinations during this time of COVID-19 shelter-in-place orders.

If you have discovery or evidence you anticipate sending us in the short term, please contact the analyst assisting you so that we can have evidence technicians available to receive it and ensure an intact chain of custody. Our analysts are as accessible and capable of assisting as if we were in the lab, though we are currently working from home.
