Welcome! Forensic Testing/BAT Unit


The Forensic Drug Testing Unit provides urinalysis and breathalyzer testing to detect the presence of controlled substances or alcohol in a person's system.  The Forensic Drug Testing Unit uses up-to-date computerized equipment and modern agents to analyze each specimen.  When tested and found to be positive, the specimens are placed in frozen storage and retained for a period of one year.  Clients are afforded the opportunity to take the specimen (at their own expense) to an independent laboratory for verification of the results.  The services are provided to any criminal justice agency, business, organizations, private citizens (including juveniles) for a nominal fee.

MISSION:  We are dedicated to providing accurate, reliable, and timely results.  With a commitment to Accountability, Accuracy, Integrity and Professionalism.  Striving for continuous improvement by supporting a creative and learning environment.
