On May 14, 2014 the Forensic Technology Center of Excellence (FTCoE) convened a federal stakeholder meeting entitled, “Organizing and Transferring SANE/SAFE/SART Knowledge and Best Practices” at the RTI location in Washington D.C.
The FTCoE leads a comprehensive federal effort to organize and transfer knowledge and best practices of sexual assault nurse examiners, sexual assault forensic examiners, and collaborative sexual assault response teams (SANE/SAFE/SART). This FTCoE effort focuses on systemic challenges that impede the investigation of criminal sexual assaults in the United States, with goals that include creating an awareness of resources and ensuring that existing research, information, knowledge, and best practices are available and accessible to SANE/SAFE/SART and other practitioners who contribute to the nation’s response to sexual assault.
This meeting brought together various individuals from federal agencies which are dedicated to the development, advancement and implementation of practices and policies which primarily address the response to sexual assault in the nation. The primary objectives of these discussions were to conduct an educational assessment of SANE/SAFE/SART training programs in order to gather input on identified disparities in knowledge transfer, research, training and policies.
Funding for this Forensic Technology Center of Excellence event has been provided by the National Institute of Justice.
A certificate of completion is available for all who register and attend this webinar.
