The Birmingham Police Department established its Cold Case Unit in 2006 to systematically review unsolved homicide cases dating back to 1951. The unit focuses its resources on those cases with the highest probability of being solved with fresh leads and new forensic technologies. Recent advances in DNA technology has greatly contributed to the amount of cold cases that can now be solved. With the aid of DNA technology and DNA databases, some of the investigative process the detectives use include cross-checking references against other cases, reviewing cases by talking to family members, following-up on new leads, and talking to witnesses or accomplices who, as they age and their lifestyle changes, are more willing to come forward The public is urged to submit any information they feel may be important to a case, and information may be submitted anonymously. In every case, there is someone in our community who holds information which may be significant in solving a case. The Birmingham Police Department Cold Case Unit may be contacted by calling (205) 297-8479 or (205) 254-8490.

Mission: Speaking for those who can't speak for themselves.
