RCMP National Forensics Lab Moves from Vancouver to Surrey Headquarters
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.”
