The Backlog:

Washington

We do not know the extent of the backlog in Washington. Like most states, Washington 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 Washington, too. Take action today to advocate for transparency and change from our elected officials.

In January 2015, legislation was introduced that would require law enforcement agencies to submit rape kits for testing within 30 days of receipt. The bill has passed the House and now awaits action from the Senate.
