With the help of two civilian employees, the Tucson, Arizona, police are making headway in their cold case unit. The two employees, hired with a $449,000 grant, have been hired to review homicides, write case summaries, search for possible suspects and witnesses, and identify items for DNA testing. And with their help the cold case unit is already starting to make more arrests and make more headway in cases that have been cold for decades.
This is a great example of how civilians are getting involved in law enforcement and proving to be a great asset to local investigations.
