The Backlog:

Georgia

We do not know the extent of the backlog in Georgia. Like most states, Georgia does not require its law enforcement agencies to track or count rape kits. In fact, just three states do—Colorado, Illinois and Texas—and because of the reforms these states have implemented, we now have a more accurate picture of the backlog there. This can happen in Georgia, too. Take action today to advocate for transparency and change from your elected officials.

In March 2015, legislation was introduced that would mandate a statewide audit of untested rape kits, and would also require new untested sexual assault kits to be submitted to the lab within 30 days of collection.
