SAMS-Track is a web application that tracks sexual assault kits as they move through the criminal justice system. Law enforcement officials, medical professionals, forensic lab scientists, and criminal prosecutors throughout the state use this program to record the movements of sexual assault kits as they process them.
The SAMS team of the Portland Police Bureau developed SAMS-Track to fulfill the requirements of Senate Bill 1571 and House Bill 4049, which were passed in 2016 and 2018 by the State of Oregon. These bills require officials to record the status of sexual assault kits from collection to disposal and every point in between. With the help of SAMS-Track, the Oregon State Police can accomplish this goal
