Welcome to the OCCL web site. OCCL provides all public law enforcement agencies in Orange
County with services for the recognition, collection and evaluation of physical
evidence from crime scenes. OCCL is the only full-service, internationally
accredited laboratory providing forensic analyses to all law enforcement and
fire protection agencies in Orange County. The Division employs over 150 staff
members, housed in a modern 100,000 square foot facility, serving the
over 3 million residents of Orange County.
The OCCL laboratory is a nationally recognized leader in the forensic science
community. For example, we were the first local law enforcement DNA lab in the
Western United States, we began the first local automated fingerprint
identification system in California and we are leading the way in DUI
enforcement with the introduction of portable breath alcohol testing devices.
Our forensic scientists and specialists, supported by a dedicated and
hardworking support staff, are skilled and knowledgeable experts
using their talents in various forensic science specialties to serve the needs
of the criminal justice community.
The Sheriff and I are extremely proud of the hard work and
dedication that the OCCL staff provides to bring nationally recognized quality

me know if there is anything we can do to improve
our service to you.
