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.

Panelists took a look inside evidence testing and decision making at the laboratory. The discussion included steps involved in processing a sexual assault kit, information about uploading data to CODIS, how laboratories address non-biological evidence and important factors related to outsourcing. 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. This webinar was recorded in its entirety at the time of the live event in order to capture the one-on-one interaction with the presenter.

Funding for this Forensic Technology Center of Excellence event has been provided by the National Institute of Justice.
