Sexual Assault Kit Initiative (SAKI) GranteeCity of Tulsa (Oklahoma)

Image of Grantee title

SAKI awarded the City of Tulsa an FY2018 grant of $1,523,037, which is being used to complete an inventory of unsubmitted sexual assault kits (SAKs). Tulsa has identified and begun to address the delays in testing these SAKs. Funding is currently being used to establish and execute a procedure for SAK testing and adequate victim notification services. With SAKI funding, Tulsa has hired four full-time staff members—a site coordinator, two SAKI investigators, and one SAKI crimes analyst. The grant funds also provide for enough consistent overtime pay within the local laboratory that staff may have the opportunity to test all backlogged SAKs during hours separate from their regular work hours.
