Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $246,549)
The goal of this proposal is for LAPD to eliminate the Sexual Assault Kit (SAK) backlog while simultaneously implementing the efficiencies which will allow it to deal with all future incoming SAKs. In order to deal with this issue, although the Scientific Investigation Division, LAPD, will perform some of the data reviews, we also propose to utilize the stated cooperation of other public agency forensic DNA laboratories to review additional profiles and upload them into the CODIS DNA database.
