Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $150,000)

The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office (OCSO) requests FY 2018 DNA Capacity Enhancement and Backlog Reduction (CEBR) Program funding to support the Forensic Science Laboratory’s mission: to provide our clients, the criminal justice system, and the individuals of the communities that we serve with the highest quality of forensic services in an efficient and timely manner.

Specifically, grant funds are requested to increase the laboratory’s DNA testing capacity by hiring and training an additional Forensic Biology Analyst and to provide continuing education opportunities to DNA Biology Unit personnel. With the support of FY 2018 CEBR funding, OCSO will be better equipped to meet the testing needs of its regional law enforcement customers.
