Sexual Assault Response Teams (SART)

A Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) is a multidisciplinary interagency team of individuals working collaboratively to provide services for the community by offering specialized sexual assault intervention services. Teams are specialized to fit the needs of each community and generally have goals of increasing reporting and conviction of sexual assaults and countering the experience of sexual trauma with a sensitive and competent response. Typically, teams consist of key responders such as advocates, law enforcement officers, forensic examiners (e.g.; SANE/SAFE/FNE), crime lab personnel, and prosecutors.
