Opening Doors: Alternative Reporting Options for Law Enforcement and VAWA Forensic Compliance

End Violence Against Women International (EVAWI), 2015

There is currently a very welcome national trend across the country emphasizing alternative reporting methods for sexual assault victims.  It is partly the result of provisions in the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) that were first enacted in 2005 and remain in effect under the current 2013 reauthorization. This is an area known as forensic compliance, and it is critically important to understand because these legislative provisions have dramatically altered the options available for victims to report sexual assault. This webinar explores a number of community models that have been implemented to improve victims' access to the criminal justice and community response systems. Best practices are reviewed from across the country, and existing tools and resources are evaluated. This webinar is free.
