The Backlog:

Rhode Island

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