Raleigh Crime Laboratory

The Raleigh Laboratory is the main laboratory for the State Crime Laboratory. The current facility opened in 1998 and provides criminal justice agencies with forensic analysis in the following disciplines: digital evidence, latent (fingerprint analysis), DNA, drug chemistry, firearms, trace evidence, and toxicology. The Raleigh Laboratory is also home to the DNA Database section.

The Raleigh Laboratory also houses the Graphics Unit which uses specialized crime scene reconstruction software to support to all law enforcement agencies, other state agencies, and District Attorneys throughout North Carolina.

Graphics services include crime scene reconstruction sketches, court exhibits, diagrams, charts, displays, name tags, brochures, pamphlets, books, and law enforcement bulletins as well as the creation of logos, certificates, organizational charts, and diplomas plus special projects.

The Raleigh Laboratory serves local state, tribal, and federal law enforcement throughout the state.
