Nassau crime lab reopening with strict oversight

December 15, 2011 5:49:24 AM PST
Nassau County is reopening its police department crime lab under the eye of a strong advisory board.

The lab was shut down over the mishandling of hundreds of criminal cases.

Former New York state Homeland Security czar Michael Balboni will lead the oversight board.

The lab will have a new facility in New Cassel.

The first priority is to seek state accreditation.
