Forensic DNA Services

The Forensic DNA Department consists of two sections: Casework and CODIS. The Casework Section performs scientific analysis of biological samples recovered from crime scenes. The Combined DNA Index System, CODIS, blends computer and DNA technologies into an effective tool for fighting violent crime. The current version of CODIS uses two indexes to generate investigative leads in crimes where biological evidence is recovered from the crime scene. The Convicted Offender index contains DNA profiles of individuals convicted of felony sex offenses (and other violent crimes). The Forensic index contains DNA profiles developed from crime scene evidence. CODIS utilize computer software to automatically search these indexes for matching DNA profiles.
