Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Few research laboratories in the United States play as crucial role in the investigation of terrorism and apprehension of serious offenders as the FBI Crime Laboratory in Quantico, Virginia, and in this release curious Americans can finally find out just how their tax dollars are put to work in the War on Terror. A $150 million plus building that was originally constructed in 1932 and later updated to utilize the most advanced technology available, the FBI Laboratory employs nearly 700 specially-trained scientists who work around the clock to crack only the toughest cases. In addition to offering a brief overview of the over one-million investigations that are annually carried out at the remarkable lab, a look at how the events of September 11, 2001 forever changed the focus of the investigations carried out there offers compelling evidence as to the many advances in modern forensic investigation.
