GBI plans for new regional crime lab to address growing population, caseload

Gray DNAThe case load has grown for the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s Coastal Regional crime laboratory since the unassuming brick building was built on Savannah’s southside 30 years ago.
But apart from the addition of an annex to house the facility’s morgue and medical staff in 2003, the lab on Mohawk Street has stayed pretty much the same, and GBI officials say it’s time for an upgrade.
