WHAT IS BACKLOG?
There are countless sexual assault kits that remain unprocessed for an extended amount of time in crime labs across the country.
WHY IT MATTERS
This leaves victims without justice. More people are at risk as the offender remains unprosecuted and serial offenders are promoted.
WHY IT EXISTS
Budget and staffing cuts in crime labs and biases in investigating cases are present. Inefficient and lengthy testings methods are a key contribution too.
