Boise 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

As of December 2015, the Boise Police Department reported 173 untested kits collected between 2006 and 2015. Since our request, 109 of these kits have been submitted for processing, leaving a backlog of 64 untested kits. To learn more about our process, click here


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.
