The Backlog:

Florida

We do not know the extent of the backlog in Florida—there is only information about the backlog at the local level, which you can see here. Like most states, Florida does not require its law enforcement agencies to track or count rape kits. In fact, just three states do—Colorado, Illinois and Texas—and because of the reforms these states have implemented, we now have a more accurate picture of the backlog there. This can happen in Florida, too. Take action today to advocate for transparency and change from your elected officials.
