SOUTH SALT LAKE, Utah — Over the past four years, Sorenson Forensics has gained a reputation among law enforcers as the place for groundbreaking work in forensic technology and for solving cold cases using sophisticated DNA identification procedures. Now, Sorenson is passing on its knowledge to other police departments around the world.
Since January, three officers from Nigeria's national police force have been in Utah learning how to collect and process DNA evidence. The goal for Sorenson officials is to travel to Nigeria in the fall and help that country build its first DNA forensics facility.
