FBI's Crime LabGet the inside story on the state-of-the-art facility where the world's best forensic experts ply their trade. Its beginnings can be traced to a disused lounge in 1932.

But as forensic science took on an increasingly important role in crime fighting, the FBI devoted more and more resources to it. Today, the FBI's Crime Lab is housed in a brand-new, $150 million facility on their Quantico campus.

From the humble origins to the top floor of the new building, MODERN MARVELS® traces the history of the FBI's forensic operations.

In-depth features highlight some of the most important departments, like Firearms, DNA and Fingerprints, and analysis of case files bring their triumphs to life.

Agents reveal what they are allowed to of the work that goes on here, and we'll get a rare glimpse of some of the cutting-edge technologies that are being perfected.

And top administrators reflect on the changes wrought by September 11th, and how the FBI is adjusting to their role in the War on Terror.

    they should, its kinda funny how alot of the stuff they use is outdated though... such as comparing hair strands, and those god awful polygraph, but hey if they say their "state of the art" and people truly believe they don't waste taxpayer dollars than whatever

    The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is the principal investigative arm of the United States Department of Justice. One of 32 federal agencies with law enforcement responsibilities, the FBI has the authority to investigate specific violations of federal criminal law, as well as provide other law enforcement agencies with cooperative services, such as fingerprint identification, laboratory examinations, and police training. The FBI’s mandate—which is the broadest of all federal investigative agencies—authorizes it to investigate all federal criminal violations that have not been specifically assigned by Congress to another federal agency. The FBI’s investigative functions fall into the categories of civil rights, counterterrorism, foreign counterintelligence, organized crime and drug trafficking, violent crimes and major offenders, and financial crime.

    The CIA stands for Central Intelligence Agency and its primary mission is to collect, evaluate, and disseminate foreign intelligence to assist the President and senior US Government policymakers in making decisions relating to the national security.

    By the way, I love your website and really enjoy a lot of your music. I am a jazz man but get into some R&B, which I think you do beautifully. Good luck, I hope you go far.

    Of course if your a whistle blower the FBI will not help you and do every thing possible to bend the rule so you are convicted even if they have to falsify the evidence.
