|In an effort to advance the objectives of Governor Youngkin's Executive Order 19, the Forensic Science Board is repealing various requirements in 6 VAC 40-60 that are cumbersome on law enforcement agencies and other authorized agencies to obtain information regarding whether a specific individual is in Virginia's DNA Data Bank or the results of any analysis of DNA evidence conducted by the Department of Forensic Science. With advances in technology, the mechanisms for requesting such information can be streamlined so that the requirements on requestors can be significantly reduced while maintaining the security of DNA Data Bank and DNA analysis information.
