Why a city auditor wants a crime lab “independent” from his local Denver police department

After singing its praises, Denver City Auditor suggests moving crime lab

Maybe this Denver city administrator is reading the forensic news. He talks about the public’s trust and new forensic “sophistication.” A very well-crafted statement.

“This recommendation is in no way intended to be a negative comment on (Denver police’s) oversight of the crime lab,” Gallagher wrote. “Rather it is a logical progression that helps maintain the public’s trust in the crime lab in an increasingly scientific and technologically sophisticated world.”
