The National Institute of Justice, through its Forensic Technology Center of Excellence hosted "Looking Ahead: The National Sexual Assault Policy Symposium" on September 8-9, 2016, in Washington D.C.
2016 NSAPS: Panel 5 - The Role of Evidence in SA Cases

This panel examined the complexities of evidence in sexual assault cases. The conversation included what is—and is not—contained in a sexual assault kit, what is considered probative by the laboratory and prosecution, issues regarding evidence storage and factors to consider in the notification of survivors regarding testing results.

The symposium focused on how the nation is moving forward and finding solutions to the complex issues that arise in sexual assault cases and in testing sexual assault evidence.  This webinar was recorded in its entirety at the time of the live event in order to capture the one-on-one interaction with the presenter.
