  • New Protocol for Untested Sexual Assault Kits

    The DOJ is pleased to announce a new protocol to address untested sexual assault kits residing with local law enforcement.

The new protocol more compassionately addresses the needs of victims while ensuring kits that should be tested are forwarded to the lab promptly.
