The primary function of the Chemistry Section is to analyze items of evidence in order to determine the presence or absence of controlled substances. Chemists provide expert testimony to the courts, supply the courts and other state agencies with factual drug information, and provide information to the general public and news media about drug abuse. Additionaly, a team of scientists is trained to assist police officers in clandestine laboratory seizures.
