The Act includes various amendments to Georgia’s sexual assault protocol. First, the Act creates a statewide tracking system for sexual assault kits. The system will track the location and status of kits through the investigative process and allow sexual assault victims to track or receive updates. Second, the Act requires that law enforcement agencies investigating a homicide or attempted homicide thought to be serial, random, or sexually motivated input information into a national database maintained by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
