Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $332,795)

To address the increasing forensic demands in Wisconsin, it is imperative that the state continues to advance and evaluate technologies while also maintaining accurate, reliable, and credible results. Wisconsin agencies working in this collaborative effort include the Wisconsin Department of Justice, Wisconsin State Crime Laboratory (WSCL), Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office (MCME), Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene (WSLH), and the Kenosha County Department of Health (KCDOH). Funding from this award will further Wisconsin’s ability to increase professional development, remain compliant with accreditation standards, maintain a high level of quality results, maintain a reasonable backlog of samples awaiting analysis, and improve the timely delivery of results. To accomplish these objectives, Wisconsin will use the provided funds to attend national and regional meetings and training seminars, maintain accreditation costs, and certifications as well as support opioid related staff, laboratory supply purchases, and equipment acquisitions.
