Tours of Mobile Crime Lab Offered to the Public

Members of the public are invited to visit the Mobile Crime Lab van as it makes stops in several community locations this week.

The Metropolitan Police Department is offering tours of the Mobile Crime Lab van to the general public.  Mobile crime personnel will explain what they do and answer questions regarding forensic science. 

They will also be available to fingerprint and take DNA cheek swabs from children in the event they go missing.  Parents must be on hand to sign a form authorizing department personnel to take their children’s fingerprints and cheek swabs, which will be turned over to the parents to keep with their important records.

Members of the news media are invited to tour the Mobile Crime Lab van, as well.  Also, police department personnel would appreciate assistance in publicizing these tours. 

The tours are being conducted at the below listed locations within the specified police districts:
