The National Institute of Justice, through its Forensic Technology Center of Excellence hosted “Looking Ahead: The National Sexual Assault Policy Symposium” on September 8-9, 2016, in Washington D.C.
The panel showcased how a multi-disciplinary team addressed a large number of previously un-submitted sexual assault kits in a victim-centered, trauma-informed way. The symposium focused on how the nation is moving forward and finding solutions to the complex issues that arise in sexual assault cases and in testing sexual assault evidence.
Funding for this Forensic Technology Center of Excellence event has been provided by the National Institute of Justice.
