It’s DNA Lab Day at the Public Safety Commission

Monday, February 6, 2017 by Elizabeth Pagano

Austinites interested in knowing exactly what went wrong at the city’s DNA lab might want to pay attention to this week’s Public Safety Commission meeting, where three separate items on the agenda are dedicated to answering just that question. Commissioners are scheduled to receive an update about where the backlog stands now (and when it will be eliminated), an update on the expert review of the lab and a briefing on the DNA lab freezer. The meeting starts at 4 p.m. today and is expected to run until 6 p.m.
