National Best Practices for Sexual Assault Kits. A Multidisciplinary Approach
What is a sexual assault kit (SAK)? A sexual assault kit (SAK) is a package of materials used to collect samples (evidence) from the victim’s or suspect’s body by a medical professional, often a medical-forensic examiner, such as a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE). The type of evidence collected depends on what occurred during the assault. The contents of a SAK vary by jurisdiction but generally include swabs and collection envelopes for biological materials, debris, and underwear.
