Utah Crime Lab improves efficiency to capture more criminals

What: The Utah Department of Public Safety Crime Laboratory is helping capture criminals faster thanks to an improved fingerprint efficiency project. Gov. Gary R. Herbert will visit the State Crime Lab tomorrow to see firsthand how the department is using the Success program to process evidence 66 percent faster and solve more cases each year.

With 14 months to go before the December 2016 target date, two-thirds of all state services have collectively achieved the governor’s goal of improving performance by 25 percent. The remaining one-third are on track to meet the target date.
