Do your neighboring municipalities have a rape kit backlog?

The rape kit backlog goes beyond the United States. This story from Australia details how DNA caught 24 people being charged with 33 historical sex attacks dating back as far as 1987.

It’s so important to realize the consequences of having a backlog on any level in that the issue goes far beyond your locality. Natasha’s perpetrator was apprehending in Las Vegas, Nevada but her attack occurred in New York City. Criminals can and do cross state, county, and international lines. If your municipality does not have a backlog that’s commendable but do you know about your adjacent counties or cities?
