OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - What has been known as the Omaha police crime lab now is called the forensic investigations unit.

The unit develops and examines latent prints, compares spent shell casings and takes photographs.

Police Lt. Darci Tierney told the Omaha World-Herald (https://bit.ly/1MuRjXN ) the new name is more correct because the civilian technicians don’t have a lab to analyze some of the evidence they collect. Tierney says outside labs handle that work.

Tierney says it’s important to have the name reflect “more of what we do rather than what we don’t do.”
