Pittsburg, KS, USA - The Kansas Bureau of Investigation has begun a pilot program called The Kansas Sexual Assault Kit Initiative. The program is geared toward tracking down rapist of unsolved cases. KBI plans to test all sexual assault kits from local law enforcement agencies and submit the DNA collected into a state database to solve the crimes.
"It's really an exciting thing for us to let the state of Kansas to let these people know that they are looking into old cases that was never dealt with and so I think that, that can serve as a very, very positive thing for a lot of victims running around that nothings ever been done, says Safe House Crisis Center Lead Advocate Vicky Polen."
Polen says KBI will work with Safe House Crisis Center to help locate the victims if and when they identify a rapist to move forward with prosecution.
