In an precedent setting move, beginning April, cops in Wisconsin will not only take DNA samples from felons, but will collect and record samples for ALL criminal misdemeanor convictions.
A local Fox affiliate carries the story, noting that the number of DNA samples collected each year is set to increase to an estimated 60,000. Currently 10,000-12,000 samples per year are taken from felons. The justification, police claim, is that hundreds or thousands of unsolved crimes could be solved with an expanded DNA database in place. Last year, 550 cases in the state were solved directly from hits garnered via DNA samples.
“We will save lives. We will save people from becoming sexual assault victims, shooting victims because of the evidence that is collected and out there,” said Department of Justice spokesman Brian O’Keefe.
