Bode ASAP - Accelerated Sexual Assault Kit Processing
Bode’s Accelerated Sexual Assault Kit Processing program (Bode ASAP) offers priority testing of non-backlogged sexual assault kits in as soon as 2, 4, or 8 weeks to help solve and prevent future crime. Agencies submit batches of cases on a weekly basis, and through Bode Cellmark’s streamlined processes, the results are provided to the client quickly and efficiently.
Backlog Reduction and Prevention
Sexual assault kits can be submitted to Bode as soon as the crime laboratory or law enforcement agency is ready to prevent or eliminate backlogs. Through the Bode ASAP program, a new batch will be initiated for testing on a weekly basis and will be reported in the timeframe requested by the client.
Stop and Prevent Crime
On average, a sexual assault occurs every minute and a half in the United States. Receiving DNA results in days will help stop serial criminals.
Testing sexual assaults quickly can:
- Identify an unknown suspect
- Confirm the presence of a known suspect
- Confirm the account of the crime
- Connect the suspect to other crimes after uploading to CODIS
- Exonerate innocent suspects
