In 2007, the National Center for Victims of Crime launched a unique initiative to study how victim service providers and other criminal justice system professionals work with victims whose cases had the potential to involve forensic DNA evidence. The results of this showed that many professionals knew very little about DNA evidence and were ill-equipped to work with victims, much less maximize the potential of the most important type of forensic evidence since the discovery of the fingerprint. In 2012, the National Center surveyed criminal justice professionals a second time. This report details the results, including comparisons from 2007 to 2012. Download the study here.
