The Backlog:

New Hampshire

We do not know the extent of the backlog in New Hampshire. Like many states, New Hampshire 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, legislation recently introduced in New Hampshire could soon change that.  

In 2016, legislators in New Hampshire introduced HB-1256, which would require a statewide audit of untested rape kits. 

If passed, New Hampshire would join a growing number of states all across the country making real reforms to end the backlog. 

Join us and take action today to advocate for transparency and change from our elected officials.
