As of December 1, 2022, there were 485 untested sexual assault evidence collection kits held in the LPD Property Unit. These remain preserved as evidence. There are no untested kits held in LPD Property that were collected as evidence prior to 2004.
Beginning July 2022, any case, other than anonymous sexual assaults, will have the sexual assault kit tested for evidence. The untested kits held in LPD Property are cases involving kits where the survivor insisted the kit not be tested, or kits collected for other agencies. LPD, along with best practice, honors the consent and direction of the anonymous survivor not to have their kit submitted for testing.
