    • 700 S. Stratford Drive, Meridian, Building 1 (main bldg).

    This field trip to the Idaho State Police Crime Lab in Meridian is a tour that will cover the follow analyses: DNA, controlled substances, blood and breath (for DWI), and fingerprint and other impressions (tire markings, footprints, etc.)

    This section of the ISP lab does not handle ballistics (firearms) evidence or toolmark analysis, which are handled by the Coeur D’Alene lab.

    Note the start time of the tour: 3 PM. The Crime Lab can only accommodate the group during normal business hours. The tour will last approximately one hour, followed by a Q&A session. Visitor parking is in the center of the lot, but is somewhat limited, so carpooling is encouraged.

    The tour is limited to 20 persons and offered to IWG members in good standing who have enrolled in the Mystery Writers Academy. If space permits, other IWG members may join the tour (click here or go through the registration process to be put on this waitlist). Persons who are not IWG members may apply to be on the waitlist but will be considered only after all interested IWG members are served.
