The panel discussed the opportunities and challenges that led to the creation of the Nevada Sexual Assault Kit Backlog Working Group, the strategic utilization of available resources and their plan for testing all sexual assault kits in the state. 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.
