Greg Neft, KSL Newsradio Salt Lake City police say there's a real need for Proposition 1 to pass. The chief says they need the new buildings the proposition would provide because the department has outgrown its current facility.

Chief Chris Burbank says it's more than just a space issue. "We have problems with leakage and some of those things, water seeping into evidence; so we're constantly having to move things around," he explained.

Another problem point is the crime lab, which supervisor Gary Johanson says is not a very safe environment. "We don't even have a real good positive flow ventilation system here. As a matter of fact, we just have that little fan up there," he said.

Both say new facilities are needed to keep the department moving forward.
