been involved in other crimes.

SAKs contain biological and trace evidence, along with other physical evidence collected from a victim.

While all evidence from sexual assaults is important, this program focuses on SAKs.

SAKs may be stored in a number of places such as, crime laboratories, police department evidence storage units, hospitals and clinics.

Many law enforcement agencies do not have computerized systems to track the processing of a SAK.

This program will allow agencies to inventory, track and report all untested and unsubmitted SAKs ensuring accountability and transparency for the collection, processing and testing of SAKs.
