There are several different approaches to testing sexual assault kits (SAKs). It is important to know the process of screening for male DNA extraction to see if testing can be moved forward. Additionally, this brief will walk readers through the difference between male DNA screening and Y-STR testing, discuss male DNA reporting, and highlight how to move the testing process forward.
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.
