Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $499,997)
Due to the large number of smaller departments in the state, there remains a significant number of departments that remain to be approached. Some of these agencies are limited in their ability investigate these rape cases due to a lack of investigative resources and investigative expertise. The Attorney General's Office (AGO) has learned that the Cold Case DNA initiative has brought needed help to the departments and hope to the victims of these crimes. Funds provided by the FY2012 NIJ Grant would allow the AGO to continue our efforts to resolve these backlogged sexual assault cases. The grantee proposes to review at least 500 cases with the requested funding.
