Camden is one of the cities where we used public records requests to uncover the number of untested rape kits in police storage as part of The Accountability Project. As of November 2014, Camden indicated that “no records exist” regarding the number of rape kits collected or stored by the police. As such, we were unable to ascertain the number and testing status of rape kits in the custody of the Camden Police Department. As of March 2017, we have closed our inquiry.

Right now, we do not know the full extent of the national rape kit backlog because few states require law enforcement agencies to count, track, or test rape kits. The Accountability Project aims to bring greater transparency and accountability to rape kit testing practices across the country.
