A multidisciplinary approach to cold case sexual assault cases improves the criminal justice process and better supports a victim’s recovery. Whether a jurisdiction uses a multidisciplinary team (MDT), Sexual Assault Response Team (SART), or both, establishing the team(s) and building cohesive relationships are critical to ensuring a team’s efficacy.
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.
