        Intervention

        SART

        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

        SART Protocol thumbnailFor more information, please contact WCASA's SART/CCR Coordinator, Ginger Francis.

        You can view or download the SART Protocol (2011 ed.) here [2MB] PDF: portable document format

         

        The U.S. Department of Justice has just launched an online SART Toolkit link to external web page under their Office for Victims of Crime.
