A forensics laboratory in Monroeville has hit the bull's eye of credibility.

RJ Lee Group Inc. said Friday its Criminal Forensics department received accreditation for gunshot residue analysis and gunshot distance determination from the American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors/Laboratory Accreditation Board–International, leading accrediting bodies in forensic sciences.

RJ Lee becomes the only private lab in the world accredited for gunshot distance determination, the company said.

Only one other private lab is accredited for gunshot residue analysis.

The accreditations mean the local company can seek new client business globally, it said in a statement.

Founded 30 years ago, RJ Lee employs 300 locally and at a number of offices across the United States.
