The FBI announced in the fall of 2003 selection of four regional laboratories that would be funded by the FBI to perform mtDNA casework as an extension of their own operations. These labs are the Arizona Department of Public Safety (Phoenix, Arizona), the Connecticut State Police (Meriden, Connecticut), the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (St. Paul, Minnesota), and the New Jersey State Police (Trenton, New Jersey). These regional mtDNA laboratories should be fully operational by September 2005 and be able to analyze approximately 120 cases each on an annual basis. It is expected that the regional mtDNA laboratories will double the FBI's capacity to provide mtDNA analysis to the criminal justice system.
