New York - New State-Of-The-Art State Police Forensic Science Lab Opens At Stewart International Airport
New Windsor, NY - With a brief ribbon-cutting ceremony on Monday, officials from the New York State Police and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey opened the region’s new state-of-the-art forensic science lab at Stewart International Airport.
RECORDONLINE.com (http://bit.ly/1PlIH8c) reports that the New York State Police Regional Crime Lab is poised to take over the old lab’s forensic caseload, including thousands of narcotics, drug and drunk driving, and evidence-based submissions.
The regional location of the new $10M, 10,000-square-foot facility will result in a reduction of time spent by state police officers acting as couriers in the process of transporting case submissions to the old lab, a reduction State Police Superintendent Joseph D’Amico said will benefit local communities.
“Agencies don’t have to spend that time commuting,” said D’Amico. “Deputies and officers are in their communities, on patrol.”
