The Kansas Sexual Assault Kit Initiative (SAKI) created a model policy and training guide on Investigating Sexual Assault, as well as a policy on Sexual Assault Evidence Collection Kit Submission, Retention, and Disposal, in an effort to ensure consistency across the state for law enforcement responses from dispatch through investigation, and referral for prosecution. The document was developed by the Kansas SAKI Multidisciplinary Working Group, which includes representatives from law enforcement, prosecution, community-based and system-based victim advocacy, forensic nursing, and the forensic science laboratory. The Working Group also created a helpful guidance that accompanies their Model Policy on Investigating Sexual Assault, to provide additional clarification on “unfounded” case coding. This document explicitly defines when cases should be coded as unfounded, and when they should not.
