The National Sexual Assault Kit Initiative Training and Technical Assistance (SAKI TTA) Team recognizes the importance of implementing effective practices when developing a multidisciplinary response to sexual assault. Through consultation with an extensive group of subject matter experts and our continued work with jurisdictions engaged in sexual assault response reform, the SAKI TTA Team has developed the following recommendations.

Stay tuned for additional recommendations focused on sexual assault investigation and investigator standards, unfounded cases, anonymous SAKs, and more.
