New forensics lab opens in Belleville

BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) — The Illinois State Police has a new forensics laboratory to help solve crimes.

The Metro-East Forensic Science Laboratory opened Tuesday in Belleville, and will provide what officials call state-of-the-art equipment.

State Police say the almost $42 million lab will be used to help police agencies throughout the region with everything from firearms to DNA testing.

The 64,000-square-foot lab was funded through the state’s capital construction program. It replaces a much smaller lab in Fairview Heights.

It was built on land purchased in 2007 from Lindenwood University.
