Consent for the Storage of Physical Evidence Recovery Kit for Non-Reported Sexual Assaults (Virginia)
Virginia has developed materials to provide instructions for mailing evidence to the state crime laboratory when a forensic examination is conducted without a report to law enforcement. They may be helpful for other jurisdictions implementing a similar procedure for transferring evidence. The instructions developed for the state of Virginia even include detailed pictures to illustrate the process, as well as a consent form for sexual assault victims to sign documenting their understanding of the process. While many community professionals are not aware of it, these procedures for mailing evidence are a standard practice for many law enforcement agencies; what is new in this context is the fact that the evidence is being mailed by forensic examiners rather than law enforcement investigators.
