Description
While the availability of training opportunities for law enforcement/EMS, advocates/DSS, medical personnel, and attorneys to adequately respond to crimes against women, including sexual assault, domestic/intimate partner violence, stalking and strangulation is present, it has failed to reach the majority in the Pee Dee Region. This training aims to remedy this and reach both new and established staff at both orientation and refresher training sessions.

Keywords: sarrt, law enforcement, violent crime, sexual assault
