Sexual Assault Forensic Evidence Inventory, Tracking and Reporting Program

The Sexual Assault Forensic Evidence-Inventory, Tracking and Reporting (SAFE-ITR) program grant awarded to Baltimore County Police Department (BCoPD) by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, U.S. Department of Justice in 2020 provides BCoPD with funding to:

  • Gain an understanding of the sexual assault kits (SAKs) within the Department’s possession
  • Update and maintain the inventory, tracking and reporting of these kits
  • Promote transparency and accountability on a public platform with funding that allows BCoPD to release 60-day reports relating to SAKs statistics

Sexual Assault Kit Workflow

Review the procedures for sexual assault kits below. The turnaround time for testing of a SAK can depend on a variety of factors, including:

  • Collection of exclusionary samples
  • Funding sources
  • Laboratory capacity
  • Survivor advocacy services


View the analysis of the number of SAKs in BCoPD's custody during the 60-day reporting periods below.
