Funding has been established to assist criminal justice agencies in obtaining professional services necessary during the investigation of a serious violent crime, that are not commonly available within the criminal justice community. Such services might include:
- 1. Professional forensic services
- 2. Special laboratory testing
- 3. Technical forensic services
Criminal justice agencies involved in a violent crime investigation, in which the Missouri State Highway Patrol or the Violent Crime Support Unit has assisted, are eligible to receive funding for special services that are not commonly provided free of charge. This does not include prosecution services.
Requests for funding will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and must be requested in writing.
