ABSTRACT

Evaluation of Cancer, Indoor Environmental Quality, and Potential Chemical Hazards at a Police Department   [open pdf - 4MB]

"The numbers and types of cancer reported among employees of the CPD [Cincinnati Police Department], CIS [Criminal Investigation Section] did not appear unusual and were unlikely related to workplace exposures. None of the chemicals used regularly were known to cause cancer in humans, and all personal exposures were below OELs [Occupational exposure limit]. Recommendations were provided to correct problems with the design and function of the HVAC [Heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning] and LEV [Local exhaust ventilation] systems and to develop a forensic laboratory health and safety plan."
