But Sarah Tofte, vice president of Policy and Advocacy at the Joyful heart Foundation, an advocacy group for sexual assault survivors, said it would ultimately be up to cities and communities, not the federal government, to figure out how to reckon with years of untested rape kits and cold cases.

"So much depends on the political will in cities. State and federal governments can do some work, but not on the ground," Tofte told msnbc.
"It's a real commitment to want to reform," she added.
...
"The thing that takes the longest is to convince a city to find out if it has a problem," Tofte said.
...
Tofte noted that cities with the largest backlogs aren't necessarily the worst offenders.

...
"When you look at the cases," Tofte said, it's often a matter of "whether the officer believes the victim, whether they think this is a person that has enough value to pursue their case.
