Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2022, $522,717)

The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office (OCSO) provides law enforcement and forensic laboratory services to Oakland County and its neighboring communities in Southeast Michigan - a population of more than 1.2 million residents.  In addition to its local customer base, OCSO provides services to more than 50 regional police departments, sheriff’s offices, and federal agencies.  OCSO is requesting FY 2022 DNA Capacity Enhancement for Backlog Reduction (CEBR) program funding to support the Forensic Science Laboratory’s mission: to provide its clients, the criminal justice system, and the individuals of the communities that it serves with the highest quality of forensic services in an efficient and timely manner.  Specifically, grant funds are requested for continued staffing support, mixture interpretation software, DNA technical training, equipment maintenance, and supplies and equipment to establish an additional DNA extraction workstation, which will help maximize throughput and reduce the laboratory’s backlog of DNA samples awaiting analysis.
