Will DFS store the PERKs after analysis?

No. After analysis, DFS will return the PERK to the law enforcement agency.  It shall be stored for 10 years or until 10 years after the victim reaches the age of majority if the victim was a minor at the time the kit was collected, whichever is longer. If the law enforcement agency receives a written objection to the destruction of the PERK from the victim, it is required to store the PERK for a period of 10 years following the receipt of the objection. After the mandatory retention period or any additional 10-year storage period has lapsed, the law enforcement agency shall, unless the victim has made a written request not to be contacted for this purpose, make a reasonable effort to notify the victim of the intended destruction of the kit no less than 60 days prior to the intended date of such destruction. In the absence of a response from the victim, or with the consent of the victim, the law enforcement agency may destroy the kit or, in its discretion, may retain the PERK for a longer period of time.
