Door County welcomes plans for crime lab improvements

Police agencies in Door County support plans to improve the three Wisconsin State crime labs.  Governor Evers' proposed budget requests $1.9-million to create a new pay progression system designed to retain current crime lab employees.  The budget proposal also calls for 17 new staffers at a cost of $1.8-million.  Door County Chief Deputy Patrick McCarty says the sheriff's department supports any effort to improve crime lab operations.  McCarty says the crime lab is the key to making cases against suspected offenders.



Among the new employees that would be added, if the budget is approved, are more crime scene response staff members, DNA technicians, chemistry technicians, an evidence technician and two firearms analysts.
