A trauma-informed approach impacts a victim's willingness to participate in the criminal justice process and is critical to physical and emotional recovery. A victim-centered response includes collaboration among allied professionals and is invaluable to victim engagement throughout the process.
Funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, the Sexual Assault Kit Initiative aims to create a coordinated community response that ensures just resolution to sexual assault cases. Through this program, funding is provided to support multidisciplinary community response teams engaged in the comprehensive reform of jurisdictions approaches to sexual assault cases resulting from evidence found in previously unsubmitted sexual assault kits.
