The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office is starting a search for a new crime lab director after Tracey Ray submitted her resignation effective December 31, 2015.
This past January, Director Ray was at the center of an investigation regarding the handling of evidence. Ray was then placed on administrative leave pending the results of that investigation. An independent forensics expert investigated the case and stated that no evidence was cross-contaminated or degraded. Director Ray returned to work this past summer.
Director ray stated that she plans to pursue other opportunities.
