CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The New Hampshire state Medical Examiner’s office is getting a federal grant of nearly $60,000 to help enhance technology and training. The funding will also help six investigators earn official certification with the American Board of Medical Legal Death Inspectors.

The grant, administered by the National Institute of Justice, is part of an agency program that seeks to improve the quality of forensic science and medical examiner services nationwide.

State officials will also use the funding to pay for a part-time evidence technician position and to acquire new equipment.
