Sexual Assault Response Team
  • A A A
  • Defining SART

    The Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) is a multi-disciplinary team developed to improve services

    to victims of sexual assault. The team is comprised of advocates from the local victim service

    center, law enforcement officers, and specially trained health care professionals. These team

    members provide a coordinated, efficient, and supportive response to victims. The benefit of the

    SART is the ability to provide a full range of comprehensive services to victims who have made the

    decision to report a sexual assault. This occurs by providing immediate crisis intervention, team

    interviews, forensic examination, and follow-up as needed. This coordinated response leads to a

    bond between the victim and the advocate, enables law enforcement to receive a foundation of facts

    regarding the case, and provides for forensic evidence for prosecution of the sexual offender. (CDVSA, 2013)

    SART Training

    Approximately every 6 months, the SART training team travels to different locations around the state of Alaska to provide a week-long training to local partner agencies. The team is comprised of the Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault (CDVSA), ANDVSA, the Alaska State Troopers, Forensic Nursing and Department of Law. These training tend to take place in November and March and the location is pre-determined by CDVSA.

    The goal of this multi-disciplinary training is to build relationships among Advocates, Law Enforcement, Forensic Nursing as well as Prosecutors and District Attorneys and any other interested partners who impact a community’s response to a report of sexual assault.
