New $75M crime lab for Milwaukee approved

The crime lab would replace an existing 40,000-square-foot facility in south Milwaukee. The new 150,000-square-foot lab would be in either Milwaukee County or Waukesha County. It would include space for DNA testing, toxicology reports, forensic imaging and evidence processing. The new facility would also house a state Department of Justice training center, a Division of Criminal Investigation field office and a regional office for the attorney general.
