Billings is one of the cities where we are using public records requests to uncover the number of untested rape kits in police storage as part of The Accountability Project

Through our efforts, we have learned that the Billings Police Department submitted 97% of all rape kits received between 2006 and 2015 to the lab for testing. As of November 2016, the Billings Police Department reported 5 untested kits in storage. To learn more about our process, click here
