The Backlog:


Miami 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. We have not yet received complete data from Miami. Please continue to check this page for the most up-to-date information.

In September 2015, the Manhattan District Attorney's Office announced that the Miami-Dade Police Department (Forensic Services Bureau) was awarded $1,968,246 in funding to address their backlog and test 2,900 rape kits.
