When you think of DNA analysis, firearms identification, examining blood patterns and narcotics testing, a college campus is not the first thing that comes to mind… but now it should.
The Hertzberg-Davis Forensic Science Center, which is located on the Cal State L.A. campus, is comprised of the forensic crime laboratories for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and Los Angeles Police Department, making it the largest local full-service crime lab in the United States on a university campus. The center also contains classrooms and labs for Cal State L.A.’s School of Criminal Justice and Criminalistics and houses the California Forensic Science Institute (CFSI).
