Image of Grantee title

In FY2023, SAKI awarded the City of Boynton Beach Police Department $113,178 to re-examine issues related to the handling of sexual assault kits (SAKs), develop and implement a methodology to improve the processing and preservation of quality DNA evidence, and provide trauma-informed victim services. The Boynton Beach Police Department will provide continued investigation and prosecution of cold case sexual assaults through submission of previously unsubmitted SAKs to a laboratory for processing. In addition, staff will use funding to enhance their evidence tracking through purchased radio frequency identification technology, which will help facilitate, standardize, and automate inventory and asset tracking of vital evidence.
