It’s one of the country’s most prestigious and sophisticated forensic labs, the NYPD Forensic Investigations Unit, where highly-trained detectives work tirelessly to put killers behind bars.

“We really do help put bad criminals in jail. We have state-of-the-art equipment. We solve numerous homicides every year,” Lt. Denis Burke said.

“This is our little police museum down here,” Lt. Burke said while giving CBS 2 a tour.

The lab is also home to some of the most notorious weapons ever fired within city limits, like the gun Mark David Chapman used to kill John Lennon.
