The Backlog:

Alaska

We do not know the extent of the backlog in Alaska. Like most states, Alaska 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 Alaska, too. Take action today to advocate for transparency and change from our elected officials.

In January 2015, legislation was introduced that would mandate a statewide audit of untested rape kits in Alaska. The Alaska legislature adjourned for the 2015 session without passing the legislation.
