Unveiling the “Glendale-Burbank DNA Justice Project.”
We’re proud to announce our $250,000 initiative to keep the Verdugo Regional Crime Lab operational after its extremely successful initial phase. In its first six months of existence, the Lab has processed more than 400 DNA samples, providing desperately needed evidence support for local law enforcement.
Since January of 2014, the Verdugo Regional Crime Lab has helped police investigators work smarter and faster – both in building cases against criminals and in exonerating the innocent. Additional funding provided through the Community Foundation will allow the lab to secure even more advanced crime-fighting technology that will improve law enforcement’s ability to process DNA samples.
The monies raised through this initiative will help prevent the delay of rape kit processing as well as the backlog of other DNA evidence. It will also secure much-needed software that will help analysts identify multiple sources of DNA within the same sample.
Each and every donation counts in keeping our community safe for our families!
