Pritzker, ISP Announce Reduction In DNA Backlog

Illinois officials say the state’s DNA backlog is down by nearly half. Governor J.B. Pritzker and ISP Director Brendan F. Kelly announced a 48-percent reduction in Biology-DNA pending assignments yesterday. The backlog has gone from nearly 93-hundred pending assignments in March 2019 down to just over 48-hundred as of the end of last month. Pritzker says the Forensic Science Task Force established in 2019 is making more recommendations to further reduce the backlog.
