Iowa Selects Track-Kit Statewide Sexual Assault Kit Tracking from STACS DNA

More than 1,200 medical and law enforcement users by mid-2020

OTTAWA, ON—November 12, 2019—STACS DNA, the sample-tracking software company, today announced that the State of Iowa has selected Track-Kit for its sexual assault forensic evidence kit (SAEK) tracking and reporting system. The system will be rolled out to all regions of the state by July 1, 2020. Iowa will be the seventh state for which STACS DNA has implemented Track-Kit for rape kit tracking.

“We are pleased to play a part in delivering sexual assault kit tracking to the citizens of Iowa,” says Jocelyn Tremblay, President and COO, STACS DNA. “We can help them get up and running very quickly and securely to provide vital information to all users across the state.”

The Track-Kit system will give vital SAEK information to more than 1,200 users at medical facilities, law enforcement agencies, crime laboratories, and attorney’s offices. Most importantly, it will be available to every sexual assault survivor, confidentially providing them with the status and location of their kit as well as local sexual assault resources and contact information.

STACS DNA will provide turnkey services to ensure a smooth and rapid rollout. Services include comprehensive training with live sessions for users at each facility, as well as technical, multichannel end-user support from 6:00 am to 9:00 pm local time, seven days a week. This will reduce pressure on state employees by allowing them to maintain focus on their core responsibilities.
