Because of demand for these services, the system is overextended and cannot provide the “quick response” assistance that is needed nationwide. The four regionally based centers in the network serve 10–15 states each—too much territory to cover with existing resources.

What is proposed is to establish 10 additional NIJ crime technology centers to meet the technology assistance needs of law enforcement. These centers will be supported by a consortium of federal laboratories to ensure that the best technology and science information and the best forensic technologies are available to law enforcement officers. This consortium will in no way duplicate the work of the existing state and local crime lab system. It is intended that the consortium will provide forensic support in coordination with local crime labs only when the local labs do not have the equipment or technical skills to do the job.
