Victoria rolls out mobile forensic labs


Melbourne: Mobile forensic and science labs have been rolled out to help Victoria Police respond faster to major incidents such as terror attacks and bushfires.

Three new vehicles, unveiled on Wednesday, will be able to test evidence such as chemical and biological substances at crime scenes and save investigat­ors the time of transporti­ng samples to the force’s forensic headquarte­rs in the northeast Melbourne suburb of Macleod.

“This is not just going to be really important in counter-terrorism instances,” Police Minister Lisa Neville told reporters on Wednesday.
