The Sexual Assault Kit Initiative (SAKI) Virtual Academy offers online trainings and resources to help improve jurisdictions’ capacity to investigate, prosecute, inventory, and track sexual assault kits and provide trauma-informed victim services and advocacy.

Developing a testing plan for unsubmitted sexual assault kits (SAKs) is a critical step in the legal process. This curriculum presents three modules that review the key sections of a testing plan, which disciplines should be involved in plan development, and the different methods for testing SAK submissions.
