How can state agencies assist local law enforcement agencies with cold cases? The Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI) created a process for supporting law enforcement in their state by providing much-needed materials that assist agencies in evaluating cold cases for reinvestigation after a CODIS hit. The following materials providing by the KBI include an overview of the CODIS Hit Packet and templates for each component. These materials can serve as a reference for other states interested in developing resources to assist investigators and prosecutors working on cold sexual assault cases.
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.
