The Consolidated Forensic Laboratory (CFL) will be a 240,000-sq. ft. building where the District of Columbia will locate the functions of public safety and health into a single state-of-the-art facility. The new consolidated facility will host portions of three departments: the Metropolitan Police Department Forensic Lab, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, and the Department of Health Public Health Lab. The facility will be at 4th and School Streets, SW, in Ward 6, on the existing site of MPD’s First District Station. The CFL is expected to realize significant operational and space efficiencies while enhancing the ability of the District to respond to future public safety and health challenges. The CFL will offer a reliable facility to law enforcement agencies to provide quality and timely information, as well as a broad range of new safety and health services to District residents.
