In the USA, crime laboratories, which use forensic science to examine evidence, may be publicly or privately operated. Private labs typically do not respond to crime scenes to collect evidence. Most states have their own crime labs. Our crime lab listings show all private and public facilities in Minnesota.

Being involved in an investigative process and not having anonymity is a direct deterrent to having people provide important information about criminal activity. Crime Stoppers programs provide this anonymity, allowing community members to provide helpful information. We have an alphabetical listing of Crime Stoppers programs in Minnesota.

These are short term facilities, and hold misdemeanants sentenced to terms of one year or less, or inmates awaiting trial on the local level.
