Sexual Assault Kit Initiative (SAKI) GranteeCounty of Washington (Oregon)

Image of Grantee title

SAKI awarded the Washington County Sheriff's Office (WCSO) a $974,066 grant in fiscal year 2018 to create an Owed DNA Unit to identify more than 1,000 offenders who owe a DNA sample for the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS). WCSO hopes to reopen many of the unsolved cases that remain after completion of the backlog testing by obtaining CODIS hits from those who owe DNA swabs. Additionally, the grant money will go toward hiring new staff members to assist in obtaining, submitting, analyzing, and tracking DNA swabs from these offenders.

Our Mission

Funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, the Sexual Assault Kit Initiative aims to create a coordinated community response that ensures just resolution to sexual assault cases. Through this program, funding is provided to support multidisciplinary community response teams engaged in the comprehensive reform of jurisdictions approaches to sexual assault cases resulting from evidence found in previously unsubmitted sexual assault kits.
