Survivor Notification

When will Project Mālama Kākou contact survivors of sexual assault to inform them of results?

Survivors will be contacted by a member of the Hawaii SAKI team if there is a new actionable development in their case resulting from the testing of the sexual assault kit.  This actionable development may include a match of the survivor’s kit to another criminal case or to a suspect in the FBI’s Combined DNA Index System (CODIS).

Survivors may also be contacted at a later date if DNA is submitted in another criminal case and it matches to DNA uploaded from their kit.
