Description

Despite assurances from top Nassau County officials to the contrary, an investigation by the Long Island Press discovered that unsuspecting taxpayers had in fact unknowingly been footing a more than $2.4 million bill for evidence testing and review as a consequence of years of lax oversight, mismanagement, gross negligence and/or willful ignorance at its critically important police department crime laboratory, which had been shuttered in 2011 after a national accreditation agency discovered mass noncompliance in its operations—and it'd be county taxpayers who'd be footing hundreds of thousands of dollars more because of those improprieties far into the foreseeable future.
