What is a sexual assault kit?

A sexual assault kit is a cardboard box that contains envelopes, swabs, and paperwork. The items inside the box are used to collect evidence during a forensic exam at a hospital or clinic after a sexual assault. The items are then placed in the box and sealed for proper evidence storage and picked up by law enforcement at the hospital they were conducted at.
