RICHMOND - On February 28, 2018, the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) conducted a membership outreach event with criminalists at the Department of Justice DNA Laboratory in Richmond. The processing and evaluation of DNA continues to be a real game changer in identifying violent criminals. These criminalist are the highly-trained professionals who make or break cases and bring closure for victims and their families.
During the outreach, Association of Criminalists-DOJ President John Miller discussed current topics affecting DOJ criminalists including pay and retention. CSLEA Chief Legal Counsel Kasey Clark discussed legal issues facing CSLEA members and upcoming contract negotiations.
CSLEA is proud these public safety professionals are part of the CSLEA family. CSLEA would also like to thank AC-DOJ Vice President Gunther Scharnhorst for arranging the event.
