Solving Property Crimes with Forensic DNA

December 8, 2009 7:00 PM - December 9, 2009 6:59 PM

Retired Detective Sergeant Joe Blozis and Mitch Morrisey, Denver District Attorney present on two innovative programs: in New York City and Denver, where DNA evidence is being regularly collected and tested in burglary cases. Burglary is a highly recidivistic crime, and one that can be a "gateway" to violent crimes. The speakers will discuss the successes of these programs and what is required to expand your jurisdiction's use of DNA to property crimes.
