Sheriff: building DNA lab will help solve cases, reduce crime

Herald Online South Carolina
Once complete, a new DNA lab at the York County Sheriff’s Office will help York County law enforcement agencies solve more crimes in less time, thereby enhancing crime prevention, sheriff’s office officials say.

Expected to cost about $540,000 for equipment, facilities and personnel, the lab will allow local agencies to process DNA evidence locally instead of sending it to the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, which sometimes has long turn-around times, officials say.
