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:
- Law Enforcement
- SANE nurses/medical personnel
Goals of a SART:
- Maximize community safety, protection, and response
- Ensure victim-centered response and access to community resources
- Hold sex offenders accountable
For more information, please contact WCASA's SART/CCR Coordinator, Ginger Francis.
