The Backlog:

Connecticut

In January 2015, legislation was introduced that would require police departments to transfer sexual assault evidence collection kits to the Division of Scientific Services/FBI lab within 10 days from collection of kit, and for the testing agencies to analyze the kit within 60 days of such collection. The bill passed the House with amendments, and has been placed on the Senate Calendar.

We do not know the extent of the backlog in Connecticut. Like most states, Connecticut does not require its law enforcement agencies to track or count rape kits, making it difficult to know the extent of the rape kit backlog here. However a growing number of states, all across the country, are making real reforms to end the backlog. This can happen in Connecticut, too. Take action today to advocate for transparency and change from our elected officials.
