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 Missouri.

There is a distinction between "jails" and "prisons." Jail are operated locally, by cities and counties. Being primarily short term facilities, jails will hold inmates sentenced to terms of one year or less, and they are typically misdemeanants. Jails will also hold inmates awaiting trial on the local level. Prisons, on the other hand, are long term facilities run by federal or state governments (and often private companies). Prisons house convicted felons and inmates serving a term of more than one year. Below is a list of the 10 largest jails, by average inmate population, in Missouri.
