Sexual Assault Response Team (SART)

A sexual assault response team (SART) is a multidisciplinary team response to victims of sexual assault. The team consists of law enforcement personnel, a SANE nurse, and a sexual assault victim advocate. SARTs are organized for and by each community to meet the unique needs of the area. A functioning SART in communities is beneficial for improving evidence collection, increasing reports of sexual victimization, increasing prosecution rates, reducing costs, and reducing retraumatization to victims.
