Abstract: THE GOALS WERE TO INCREASE THE OVERALL NUMBER OF CASES EXAMINED BY AT LEAST 15 PERCENT, AND TO AUGMENT THE STAFF. THESE GOALS WERE ACHIEVED BY AUTOMATING THE BLOOD-ALCOHOL ANALYSIS PROCESS AND THE ROUTINE SCREENING OF DANGEROUS DRUGS BY A GAS CHROMATOGRAPH-MASS SPECTROMETER WITH A DEDICATED MINICOMPUTER. SEVERAL ADDITIONAL CRIMINALISTS WERE HIRED. THE NUMBER OF CASES PROCESSED INCREASED BY MORE THAN FOUR TIMES THE GRANT COMPLIANCE FIGURE.
