Supervising a Sexual Assault Unit

Add to your Briefcase

Running a successful sexual assault or sex crimes unit requires specialized skills and knowledge of best practices in the field. Best practices will not last if they lack consistency across a unit or are lost during staff turnover. Use the resources below to develop key policies for supervision of sexual assault investigations and procedures that help create and sustain a successful sexual assault unit.

Our Mission

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.
