The Backlog:


In September 2015, the Manhattan District Attorney's Office announced the Georgia Criminal Justice Coordinating Council was awarded $1,999,982 in funding to test 3,108 rape kits.

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, 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 Georgia, too. Take action today to advocate for transparency and change from our elected officials.
