Raleigh/Wake County-City Bureau of Identification's Crime Laboratory Division Laboratory Procedures

Attorneys should review lab procedures to understand the forensic techniques used to analyze the evidence in their cases. This page will be updated as additional procedures are received, but attorneys should request any procedure from the lab through discovery rather than relying on the documents posted here. It is important to review the procedure that was in effect at the time the evidence was processed. These documents show edits that have been made to update the procedures. The lab uses this format so that its forensic examiners can easily identify changes. If the information you need is not available, please contact the CCBI Crime Laboratory Division.
