New FBI Lab At UNM

Albuquerque – The FBI in Albuquerque has opened a new crime lab at the University of New Mexico campus.

FBI officials say the New Mexico Regional Computer Forensics Laboratory unveiled Tuesday will give law enforcement agencies in the state "highest quality digital forensics services" aimed at fighting terrorism and violent crimes. The lab will also help authorities with internet crimes, child pornography and intellectual property crimes.

The new FBI lab in New Mexico is the second Regional Computer Forensics Laboratory located on a university campus, and the 16th such facility in the FBI's national network of one-stop, full-service forensics laboratory and training centers.
