The Fayetteville Police Depart-ment, like every agency in the state has witnessed the de-crease in services provided by the GBI State Crime Lab. The State Crime Lab has a backlog of cases with evidence needing specialized processing that can only be done by utilizing spe-cialized equipment. The GBI is not able to perform many of these specialized processes or test and they have requested police agencies to start con-ducting their own testing of cer-tain items of evidence.
