With this initiative, BJA seeks to address delays in forensic lab testing with the ultimate goal of reducing court backlogs for drug-related offenses.
BJA will select an applicant to establish a pilot project to develop a national training model on current rapid identification technology and scientifically sound field collection and testing methods that can be used when drugs are discovered in the field. To be led by an accredited institution of higher learning, the training should incorporate evidence collection and testing technologies and methods that are reliable within state and local court systems.
