To enhance law enforcement’s ability to solve crimes,
the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved a $159,343 grant from the
Governor’s Office of Emergency Services and a $1,057,121 grant from the
United States Department of Justice, for the Sheriff Department’s forensic
sciences program, Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich announced today.

 

The grant funding will be used by the Sheriff’s Department to
secure continued education and training programs for the Department’s
full-time forensic scientists. 

It will also assist in the prevention and
backlogging of forensic cases and improve the turn around time for case
analysis, purchasing supplies, and outsourcing DNA cases for the
Department’s Scientific Services Bureau’s Crime Lab.
