No More Excuses: Rape Kits must be Tested
Tell the International Association of Chiefs of Police:
Each year tens of thousands of individuals report incidents of rape to law enforcement; however, rape has the lowest arrest and prosecution rates of all violent crimes in the United States. Part of the problem is a backlog of untested rape evidence kits. Please make sure the International Association of Chiefs of Police takes a leadership role by publicly and strongly recognizing the importance of testing DNA evidence in rape cases, and by urging your members who are police chiefs to treat this as a priority.
