Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $157,922)
The Long Beach Police Department's (LBPD) goals and objectives are to reduce the backlog of unsolved homicides requiring review, identify probative biological cold case evidence suitable for DNA testing, subject that evidence to DNA analysis with the expectation it will produce CODIS hits, and pursue all CODIS hits and investigative leads derived from DNA analysis. LBPD remains under a contractual agreement with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department (LASD) for scientific services, ensuring DNA testing will be conducted under the strictest standards of quality control. The LBPD expect to review 112 cases and submit evidence for analysis in at least 28 cases with the requested funding.
