Crime Laboratory & Property and Evidence Room
On August 23, 2010, the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony & Open House was held to celebrate the completion of the renovations to the new Fort Worth Police Department Crime Laboratory / Property and Evidence Room.
The project commenced on September 7, 2009, with the demolition of the interior of the old Stripling Cox Department Store located at 3616 E. Lancaster Avenue in Fort Worth and was completed on May 5, 2010 with occupancy following on June 14, 2010.
The renovations to the new Crime Laboratory / Property and Evidence Room have created an improved work environment that will:
- Reduce the possibility of contamination of evidence and will improve the security of evidence.
- Provide adequate space for future personnel growth and the ability to potentially undertake additional forensic science services such as, DNA, Toxicology, Arson analyses, shoe print/tire tread comparisons etc.
The Crime Control and Prevention District funded the total cost of renovations, while the Department of Justice provided grant funding for the furnishings and minor lab equipment. The Fort Worth Police Department says thank you!
