        The primary purpose of a Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) is to provide a resource for communities surrounding systemic response to sexual assault. Although similar to a Coordinated Community Response Team (CCR), a SART is smaller in number and made up of members from four disciplines:

        • Advocates
        • Law Enforcement
        • SANE nurses/medical personnel
        • Prosecution

        Goals of a SART:

        • Maximize community safety, protection, and response
        • Ensure victim-centered response and access to community resources
        • Hold sex offenders accountable
