DWI

The Toxicology Laboratory analyzes all blood and urine DWI/DUID samples collected in Suffolk County for alcohol and impairing drugs. Samples are taken in cases of fatalities, serious personal injuries and violations of Leandra's Law (driving impaired with a minor in the car). The laboratory provides timely and comprehensive reports to the District Attorneys' Office to aid in prosecution of DWI in Suffolk County. The Toxicology Laboratory also provides expert testimony in many of these cases.
