Thank you for taking my call. I am a resident of __________________ and I'm calling to ask about the processing of rape evidence kits.
I would like to know how long it takes to get rape evidence kits tested, and also the number of kits that are currently backlogged and waiting to be tested.
[If there is a backlog] I'm sorry to hear that there is a backlog. Can you tell me by what date you expect to have the backlog completely eliminated?
