Crime Scene Team / Crime lab
Regional Crime Lab
The Sherburne County Sheriff's Office has joined in a partnership with Wright County and Anoka County in building the regional crime lab for some of our forensic needs. The Crime Lab will provide services to Criminal Investigations Division (CID) and the rest of the Sheriff's Office by conducting drug analysis, fingerprint analysis, and DNA analysis.
CID has also entered into a partnership with the Elk River, Big Lake, and Becker police departments in forming a countywide crime scene processing team. This 12-member team will respond to serious felony and misdemeanor crime scenes in order to process that area with efficiency and accuracy so that all of the physical evidence at the scene is collected, categorized and used for a successful prosecution.
