Mailing Evidence

The Crime Laboratory mailing address is:

State of Alaska Scientific Crime Detection Laboratory
4805 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Ave
Anchorage, AK 99507

When using the U. S. Postal Service for transmittal of evidence, it is necessary to maintain the proper chain-of-custody. To maintain reasonable control over evidence transmitted in this manner, evidence should be mailed by certified or registered mail with a return receipt requested (or equivalent shipping method such as FedEx, UPS of GoldStreak). This method of shipment allows the sender to maintain a written record of the various stages of transmittal. Use a street or route number in your return address so that evidence may be returned to you by USPS or other shipping agent with a signature of receipt required.
Package item(s) of evidence in a sealed, labeled and initialed evidence container(s). Complete the RLS. Place the evidence container and the RLS in a larger envelope or box for mailing.
