Lab Turnaround Time Commitment
The Tulsa PD Forensic Laboratory is committed to issue
laboratory analysis reports in a timely manner. Table 1 lists
the disciplines with their corresponding goal. Time starts
the day the laboratory analysis request is received by the TPD
Laboratory. If a report cannot be completed within the
committed time, communication with the requestor is

Disclaimer: Some items are examined by one or more
disciplines. Those items are examined in succession;
therefore, adding to the completion time. For example, a gun
submitted for latent prints examination and NIBIN entry.
First, the gun is examined by the latent print section and a report
is released within the committed time. Then, the evidence is
transferred to the firearms section for NIBIN entry and report
issuance, thus, delaying the NIBIN turnaround time (i.e.
approximately 90 + 30 days for NIBIN completion).
