Sexual Assault Kit Reviews
A leader in providing the highest quality DNA technical reviews
Understanding your Complexities
We’re ready to assist
Riley, Welch, LaPorte & Associates offers contractual DNA technical reviews (in compliance with the FBI’s Quality Assurance Standards (QAS) for Forensic DNA Testing Laboratories) in support of government crime laboratories that have outsourced DNA casework to private fee-for-service laboratories. Staff DNA scientists are available who have significant experience conducting a large number of technical reviews from many of the major private DNA laboratories in the United States.
Significant levels of funding available to the government forensic laboratories for testing large numbers of sexual assault and other types of criminal cases has placed a large burden on them. Many laboratories have outsourced the testing to private laboratories, but private laboratories do not have access to upload eligible DNA profiles to the national DNA database, CODIS. Government laboratories must take ownership of the DNA data prior to upload of profiles through completion of a technical review. These technical reviews are an additional burden on government crime laboratories. Riley Welch LaPorte & Associates Forensic Laboratories is ready to assist in this area.
