Deploying DNA Evidence from Sexual Assault Kits

Add to your Briefcase

DNA evidence from sexual assault kits is a powerful tool for sexual assault case investigation and prosecution. Entering DNA profiles into the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) can identify unknown offenders and link multiple crimes. The tools describe DNA tests, provide guidance in choosing the most appropriate testing method, and discuss the flow of data into CODIS. These resources are for investigators and prosecutors who desire to maximize the benefits of forensic DNA analysis.

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.
