Minister of National Security Edmund Dillon says prisoners will be the first persons in this country to have their DNA tested.

He made the statement while speaking at the PNM's Post Budget Forum in San Fernando on Friday night. The National Security Minister says a DNA Custodian has been contracted and the Cabinet recently passed DNA policy, which will soon be laid in Parliament. 

Government is in the process of inviting tenders for equipment to outfit the DNA lab which is expected to come on stream by year's end. The DNA lab is expected to be housed at the ABMA building at St Vincent Street, Port-of-Spain. Minister Dillon says prisoners will be the first to have their records in the DNA database.
