End Violence Against Women International (EVAWI), 2015
This training bulletin is the seventh in a series designed to explore alternative reporting methods. Previous bulletins have provided an introduction to the essential concepts and explored some key components for implementation. This installment discusses the issue of evidence storage and retention. EVAWI staff are frequently asked questions about this topic and begin by discussing how long evidence should be stored in connection with any alternative reporting procedures that are offered for sexual assault victims.
