Keller: Statewide Meetings For Evidence Kit Audit

SANTA FE New Mexico State Auditor Tim Keller has announced meetings around the state with community members and advocates on sexual assault evidence kits, commonly referred to as “rape kits.”
The meetings will take place in the areas that have been selected for the Office of the State Auditor’s audit that aims to identify the causes of the statewide rape kit backlog.
“Our state cannot get to the bottom of the backlog of sexual assault evidence kits without talking to the community members and advocates who have been working on this issue for years,” Keller said. “We are working in-step with stakeholders and law enforcement agencies to shine a light on the changes that are needed to eliminate the backlog and keep it from happening again, for the sake of survivors and our public safety.”
