This toolkit supports the work of sexual assault response teams (SARTs), which are multidisciplinary, interagency teams that promote collaboration in supporting victims of sexual assault and holding offenders accountable.
Abstract
This second edition of the SART Toolkit provides resources for communities wanting to develop SARTs — coordinated teams of people who serve victims of sexual assault — and for communities wanting to improve their SART responses. The toolkit reviews the basics, lays out the steps involved building a SART, outlines strategic planning for SART operations, and describes how to remain focused on serving victims of crime.
