    (Dayton Daily News) — The Miami Valley Regional Crime Lab received a $1 million state grant to update its equipment. Officials say the grant will be used to buy rapid DNA identification technology, create a new technician position, and improve the hardware and software used in the lab. The lab works with law enforcement throughout the Miami Valley. It investigates thousands of cases a year, and is also responsible for toxicologies, testing drugs, and DNA analysis. The grant is part of the larger $10 million dollar Ohio Crime Lab Efficiency Program.
