Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $257,555)

The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department Crime Laboratory (SLMPD) has a backlog of cases at the DNA analysis level that could be partially alleviated by hiring full-time DNA analysts and a Criminalist to assist the DNA Section of the laboratory. The overall goals and objectives of this program will be to reduce the number of untested forensic casework samples, to enter eligible profiles into CODIS and obtain hits, and to prosecute the suspects. This will be accomplished by continuing to employ two full-time grant-funded employees and funding overtime for all DNA analysts, department or grant funded.
