FORENSIC SERVICES BUREAU

West Side of FSD Resized 2

 

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office has provided quality crime scene support to the Omaha Metro area since 1980 as a formal unit of the Sheriff's Office.

Initially, this unit was called the Criminalistics Division and consisted of a mixture of sworn and civilian personnel. These personnel performed crime scene investigations, fingerprinting services, criminal bookings and provided breath alcohol breath testing for the department. They were specially trained in latent print processing and did all of their comparisons by hand using the Henry classification system. All crime scene photos were taken with film cameras and were developed by the investigators in an on-site dark room.
 
Over time, the Criminalistics Division developed into the Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) Division and was fully civilianized; employing only specially trained civilian personnel.
 
As the field of Forensic Science evolved and to meet the growing needs of the community, the CSI Division evolved into the Forensic Services Division (FSD) that continues to provide professional forensic services to Douglas County and many other agencies in the Omaha metro area. The FSD is comprised of three separate units; crime scene, latent prints, and chemistry. Each unit is staffed with appropriately educated personnel who report to a Crime Lab Director who is responsible for all of the work produced by the FSD.
 
In 2011, the FSD relocated into a new facility; growing from 1,500 square feet of lab space to a total space of 10,000 square feet - providing the opportunity for expansion and updating of services. In January of 2019, the Forensic Services Division became its own Bureau (Forensic Services Bureau) within the Sheriff's Department and reports directly to the Sheriff. The FSB proudly provides quality forensic services to its customers by seeking truth and justice through science.
