This tool provides an overview of the sexual assault kit (SAK) testing process. The process begins with submitting SAKs to the laboratory for testing and continues with Combined DNA Index System review and victim notification. Included in this tool are a glossary of common terms related to the testing process and an infographic outlining the path SAKs follow during the testing process.
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.
