The Miami Valley Regional Crime Laboratory (MVRCL) may utilize an interdepartmental squad with participants from police agencies, the offices of the county prosecuting attorney and the county coroner, as well as the personnel of the DNA testing laboratory as part of their efforts. There will be three part-time detectives assigned to the initiative. Detectives from other law enforcement agencies may rotate through the Squad when a case specific to their organization is being reviewed and investigated. The grantee proposes to review at least 90 violent crime cold cases with the requested funding.
