Law enforcement agencies can decrease the turnaround time for individual cases by:
- Using the Prelog online submission process on the Ohio Law Enforcement Gateway
- Supplying all requested information on the Prelog form, including victims’ and suspects’ dates of birth
- Providing a crime synopsis of one or two paragraphs that covers what questions need to be answered by DNA testing. Long investigative reports are discouraged.
- Supplying any known DNA reference standards at the time of evidence submission. These include standards for the victim, suspect, consensual partners, and any other elimination standards.
