Untested Sexual Assault Evidence: The Legislative Response

webinar graphic

NCSL Webinars allow attendees to participate in meetings taking place around the world from the comfort of their desk. They are collaborative, interactive and easy to use.

Most webinars will be recorded for those who are unable to attend the live meeting.

Across the nation, state and local governments are grappling with challenges presented by untested sexual assault kits—commonly called “rape kits”—that exist nationally in police precincts and storage facilities. Each untested sexual assault kit represents a potential opportunity to identify a criminal and provide closure for a victim. Listen to this webinar to learn how states are coordinating resources and addressing untested sexual assault evidence.
