"The multidisciplinary teams in Detroit and Houston had to develop protocols for notifying victims in cases where the sexual assault kit (SAK) had not previously been -- but was now being -- tested for DNA evidence. These protocols (and the process that the teams went through to develop them) may help other jurisdictions consider how best to notify victims of the results of SAK testing; these may be useful both in situations where a large number of previously untested SAKs in older cases are now being tested and in the investigation and prosecution of current cases. Using a victim-centered approach for notifying victims about the status of their sexual assault cases may help minimize the trauma a victim experiences when receiving this type of information, especially in older cases." -- Page 1.
