Making Connections: Linking Community Confinement and Sexual Assault Response Teams
In this webinar, the presenters will discuss Partnering with Community Sexual Assault Response Teams: A Guide for Community Confinement and Juvenile Detention Facilities, a resource guide funded by the Office for Victims of Crime and developed by The Vera Institute of Justice, following a 3-year partnership with the Johnson County, Kansas Department of Corrections. This webinar will focus on how community confinement facilities can leverage existing community expertise to respond to incidents of sexual abuse, namely by creating partnerships with community sexual assault response teams (SARTs). Vera project lead Allison Hastings and Adult Residential Center Director Antonio Booker (one of two facilities operated by the Johnson County Department of Corrections) will walk participants through key aspects of the planning tool included in the guide, discuss how using this guide will aid compliance with PREA standards, and share lessons learned from the pilot project.
