CSI Robots

Robots recruited to help solve crimes

June 22, 2005

ADVANCED robotics will be used to help solve crimes in South Australia.

The State Government will install the automated systems at the forensic science centre to speed up the processing of DNA material.

Administrative Services Minister Michael Wright said the robots would be put in place over the next year and would help cut the time taken to process DNA samples from the current two weeks.

Mr Wright said at present there were also 5500 samples taken from crime scenes awaiting to be compared to DNA samples on file.

He said these tests were producing 40 matches a week linking suspects with crimes or linking previously unrelated crimes.
