TORRANCE — The city of Torrance will spend $655,000 on a new forensics laboratory at the Police Department.

The proposed 2,500-square-foot lab will replace an existing small one that is almost 30 years old, officials said.

The City Council approved the project at its Tuesday meeting.

The city has already spent about $127,000 over the last two years for architectural, engineering and design services related to the lab's delayed construction.

"It's long overdue, but it's worth the wait," Police Chief John Neu told the council.

The project is scheduled to start early in 2013, with work finished by summer.
