Image of Grantee title

In FY2019, SAKI awarded the Beadle County State's Attorney Office $498,332 to inventory, track, and test previously unsubmitted sexual assault kits (SAKs) for the State of South Dakota (SD). The office—together with the Department of Criminal Investigation, SD Network Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, River City Domestic Violence Shelter, and Center for the Prevention of Childhood Maltreatment—will also use the funds to strengthen the SD Statewide Sexual Assault Task Force (SATF). The SD SATF will address and identify the individual, organizational, and systemic factors that have led to unsubmitted SAKs across the state. The Beadle County State's Attorney Office, together with their multidisciplinary partners, will also use SAKI funds to increase technical assistance across the state to improve case outcomes and survivor engagement at all levels of the criminal justice system.
