NIJ-sponsored project contributes to the growing body of evidence on how to handle untested sexual assault kits.
In a one-year project that tested 1,000 sexual assault kits (SAKs) in New Orleans, there were hits against the FBI’s Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) that aided police investigations in 13 percent of the cases. The NIJ-sponsored project grew out of a request from the U.S. Department of Justice to provide assistance to the city after it initiated an investigation of the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) in 2010.
