The Backlog:

South Dakota

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