The “sexual assault DNA kits” backlog problem will require our constant vigilance.
After the many years we’ve been working to raise the public’s awareness of this issue, USA Today reported just this year that, in New York, more than half of police agencies miss the deadline to report the number of untested sexual assault evidence kits to the state.
Shamefully, the state’s report was incomplete. Only 265 of 586 police and prosecutorial agencies submitted their results on time. That is less than half.
Friends, this is no time for slumber. Join Concerned Women for America and help us fight for the victims of sexual assault, both at the federal and state level.
