Jackson 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 April 2015, the City of Jackson has not fully cooperated with our legal request for its rape kit records from the past ten years.

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.
