We've just purchased two items for the new Verdugo Regional Crime Laboratory (VRCL). Housed at the GPD, the lab serves Glendale, Burbank and Pasadena. The existing crime scene investigations, latent print processing and computer forensics were combined with the National Integrated Ballistic Information NEtwork (NIBIN) and our new DNA testing Laboratory.


Sterilizing Hood

DNA testing is a highly sensitive technique. Preventing contamination is critical within the lab. The sterilizing hood allows the forensic specialists to work in an environment where foreign DNA and trace evidence will not contaminate evidence.

NIBIN and Stereo-zoom Microscope

Screen Shot 2014-01-12 at 8.51.50 PMThe lab uses NIBIN equipment to acquire digital images of cartridge cases recovered from crime scenes. The samples are entered into the NIBIM equipment and run against other entries at local regional and national levels. The microscope allows forensic specialists to examine the fine details on the cartridges that may not be visible to the eye.
