Why are we testing the kits now?

Iowa began inquiring about how many unsubmitted sexual assault kits existed in 2015. After discussing this, there seemed to be more questions than answers. Iowa applied for a grant through the Bureau of Justice Assistance that would help address the issue of unsubmitted sexual assault kits in Iowa. This funding provides money for Iowa to contract with private labs to test the unsubmitted sexual assault kits while not creating a backlog at the state crime lab with current cases.
