Colorado lawmakers have been told that the state needs more patrol troopers and newer lab equipment for DNA finger printing.
Colorado State Patrol Chief Mark Trostel and Colorado Bureau of Investigation Director Bob Cantwell appeared before legislative budget writers to submit requests, which total about $6 million.
