Mr. Purvis,

Per your public records request, we have attached the Mobile Crime Lab Maintenance History and the Mobile Crime Lab Driver Log. A second and third e-mail will follow with Parts 1 and 2 of the Crime Scope Manual.

We have no records responsive to the calibration and certification records; however the manual does contain some quality control paperwork. It is included in your request.

Thank you. Please acknowledge receipt of the documentation.
