LOWELL, Ind. – The Indiana State Police unveiled their crowning achievement on Tuesday: the Lowell Post and Regional Laboratory, a contemporary fortress of forensic excellence spanning a whopping 40,000 square feet.
The state-of-the-art edifice at 1550 E. 181st St. replaces a four-decade-old, 8,000 sq. ft. structure, reflecting the leaps in investigative capabilities Indiana now possesses. Serving 15 northern counties, the facility is an answer to the surging demand for evidence analysis.
Superintendent Doug Carter proclaimed the facility a symbol of “unwavering partnerships” and dedication to victims of crime. Echoing these sentiments, Governor Eric Holcomb hailed the inauguration as a testament to “years in the making,” praising collaborative state and local leadership.
This milestone marks the second phase in a tripartite project, focusing on expanding the state’s forensic prowess. With the Evansville Post & Regional Laboratory on the horizon, Indiana is set for a forensic revolution come fall 2024.
