Innovative Ways to Improve Crime Lab DNA Processing



The Urban Institute contracted with the National Institute of Justice to conduct an evaluation of its 2008 Forensic DNA Unit Efficiency Improvement Program. The findings suggest that there is some evidence in support of the hypothesis that crime lab DNA processing can be improved in novel and innovative ways besides simply increasing capacity. The Urban Institute's primary goal was to systematically evaluate the implementation and potential outcomes of the proposed innovative approaches to improve DNA crime laboratory efficiency.
