PERK Work Group

The PERK Work Group was convened by the Governor in response to the PERK Inventory Report to evaluate criteria for PERK evidence testing in the Commonwealth.  The Work Group, which was chaired by Secretary of Public Safety and Homeland Security Brian Moran, included as members First Lady Dorothy McAuliffe and representatives of victim advocate groups, Commonwealth’s Attorneys, the criminal defense bar, law enforcement, forensic nurses, and the Department of Forensic Science.

The PERK Work Group held three meetings; on September 17, 2015, at the Department of Forensic Science’s Central Laboratory, and on October 23, 2015, and November 9, 2015, at the Patrick Henry Building.
