In 2019, SAKI awarded Pima County a grant in the amount of $2 million, which they will use to inventory and test cold case sexual assault kits in Pima County and at the Tucson Police Department. The funding will also be used to conduct familial DNA searches, forensic genealogy searches, and/or DNA phenotyping/ancestral analysis, where such tactics are needed for successful suspect identification and prosecution.

Our Mission

Funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, the Sexual Assault Kit Initiative aims to create a coordinated community response that ensures just resolution to sexual assault cases. Through this program, funding is provided to support multidisciplinary community response teams engaged in the comprehensive reform of jurisdictions approaches to sexual assault cases resulting from evidence found in previously unsubmitted sexual assault kits.
