Sexual Assault Forensic Evidence – Inventory, Tracking, and Reporting (SAFE-ITR) Program

Overview

The knowledge of the status of sexual assault kit (SAK) evidence is crucial in combating violent crime and to improve responses and services to America’s crime victims.

BJA’s Sexual Assault Forensic Evidence – Inventory, Tracking, and Reporting (SAFE-ITR) Program provides funding for agencies to gain insight into the scope of unanalyzed SAKs and for managing the status of the workflow of the SAKs. This program assists agencies in addressing the inventory, tracking and reporting of SAKs.

This program is one of the forensic science programs that moved from the National Institute of Justice to BJA in FY 2020.

View the July 2021 Fact Sheet to learn more about this program. See the Forensic Sciences page for additional resources and to learn more about how BJA supports this topical area.
