This document illustrates the workflow associated with entering foreign DNA profiles from sexual assault kits into the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) to identify potential perpetrators in sexual assault cases. The different types of CODIS hits and the provisions for uploading are discussed.
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.
