- Canada News · Royal Canadian Mounted Police · Vancouver · Surrey

The RCMP Na­tional Foren­sics Lab in Van­cou­ver has been re­placed with a new sta­teof-the-art fa­cil­ity in Sur­rey. The new lab opened on July 15 at the RCMP E-di­vi­sion Head­quar­ters at 14200 Green Tim­bers Way in the Green Tim­bers area of Sur­rey.

The new fa­cil­ity, which cov­ers 7,446 square feet, will be ap­prox­i­mately twice the size of the pre­vi­ous lo­ca­tion and will be staffed by 105 em­ploy­ees. It fea­tures ad­vanced telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions sys­tems and spe­cial­ized work­sta­tions de­signed to ful­fill lab op­er­at­ing re­quire­ments.

“These ser­vices play a vi­tal role in crim­i­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tions,” ac­cord­ing to a re­lease. “The new lab will al­low the RCMP to con­tinue pro­vid­ing crit­i­cal ser­vices to sup­port crim­i­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tions across Canada, help­ing to iden­tify, elim­i­nate or ex­on­er­ate sus­pects, and en­hance pub­lic safety.”
