Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2015, $348,702)

The San Diego County Sheriff’s Regional Crime Laboratory ("Lab") requests $348,702 in program funding to increase its DNA analysis capacity and reduce backlog. The funding will be used to: pay overtime salary and benefits for analysts to examine backlogged DNA cases; purchase an additional genetic analyzer and automated DNA extractor; obtain extended warranties for this equipment; acquire additional supplies for DNA analysis; extend the lease on a copier used in the Lab; and, send the Lab's DNA analysts to continuing education events. The goals of the project funded by this award are to improve DNA sample analysis throughput, decrease the Lab's backlog of unanalyzed DNA cases, and shorten the average length of time needed to analyze DNA evidence.
