Jacksonville Regional Services Center


DMS (State of Florida Department of Management Services) built several new office facilities, a cafeteria, a central plant and a FDLE forensic laboratory in Jacksonville.

Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) labs must be accredited by the American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors/Laboratory Accreditation Board (ASCLD/LAB). FDLE laboratories utilize proven scientific equipment and accepted scientific techniques. Disciplines include Chemistry, Computer Evidence Recovery, Crime Scene processing, DNA Database, Documents, Firearms, Latent Prints/AFIS, Microanalysis, Serology/DNA, and Toxicology. The laboratory support systems need to be validated in advance of FDLE seeking this accreditation.
