Sometimes the problem can be found in the solution

In Friday’s report from the Tacoma City Manager to the City Council, I noticed a small item. The city has applied for a Paul Coverdell Forensic Science Improvement grant.

“Funds (would be used) to eliminate a backlog in the analysis of forensic evidence. Funds would be used to hire a contract latent print examiner for cases from 2008.”

I searched our clips using key words like “backlog”, “forensic,” “fingerprint” and “Tacoma.” Everything that comes up is several years old.

It appears there’s some sort of forensic and fingerprinting backlog in Tacoma that we haven’ written about. Good to know.
