San Diego County Crime Lab
San Diego, California
The San Diego County Crime Lab is the third phase of the County Operations Center Development, the largest public works project in the history of the County. The site of the new crime lab was occupied by the existing fleet maintenance facility, which was relocated to clear the site for the new crime lab. The new crime lab integrates seamlessly with the COC campus and houses 200 employees, allowing forensic lab technicians, property and evidence storage facilities, and detectives all operate under the same roof for the first time.
