Event description: This event examined the experiences of the cities collecting DNA evidence from property crimes, and discussed how other cities can determine if such procedures are right for them. The panel shared strategies for building partnerships among police, crime labs and prosecutors, and addressed other challenges a city may face as part of this endeavor.
