The Johnson County Sheriff's Office Criminalistics Laboratory (JCSOCL) provides services at no cost to all local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies within the county.

Objective one is to retain two full-time grant funded positions to work biology/DNA cases, one FS and one technician. Objective two is to provide overtime to current analysts to assist in reducing the backlog. Objective three is to purchase Probabilistic Assessment for Contributor Estimate (PACE) software.
