WLOX Editorial: Significant improvements at State Crime Lab

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - The Mississippi State Crime Lab is doing better on its backlog of cases, and we are glad to see it.

One improvement is significant since it involves shooting cases.

The Crime Lab uses the National Integrated Ballistic Information Network.

The sharing network can connect guns to crimes and help officers solve cases and hopefully get a shooter off the streets before committing another crime.

The firearms network has produced 144 investigative leads this year.

We are glad to see this improvement that helps to solve gun crime. That’s our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
