The Ohio Office of Criminal Justice Services (OCJS) has set key goals for the FY19 Coverdell grants program: 1) to keep qualified personnel to assist in the reduction/elimination of backlog in the areas of analysis of forensic science evidence; 2) to obtain critical and up-to-date information available on forensic analysis through professional conferences, instrument manufacturers, training and networking; and 3) procure technology and supplies that will maintain or enhance laboratory accreditation, quality assurance and analytical ability and maintain the standards of ASCLD/LAB accreditation. OCJS will use a competitive grant selection process to equitably distribute these funds amongst the laboratories and medical examiner/coroner officers in the state of Ohio.
