Rapid DNA: Changing the way investigators do business

Tuesday, April 23, 2019

Dozens of cases – big and small – have been solved in the last several months thanks to Rapid DNA, a new technology that allows law enforcement to analyze evidence on the crime scene and deliver results within a couple of hours.

Used by law enforcement agencies across the state, special agents with the Utah Attorney General’s office have found the technology to be effective and efficient at linking DNA to crimes. In addition, the whole process is faster and cheaper than using private labs.

Rapid DNA technology is available to any law enforcement agency in the state at no cost to their local taxpayers. The testing is paid for by the Utah Attorney General’s office and supplemented by local grants.

It’s one more step in making our communities safer.
