Looking Back -- Moving Forward: A Guidebook for Communities Responding to Sexual Assault discusses the history of the criminal justice system's response to sexual assault. It advocates the need to develop victim-centered methods of investigating, prosecuting and adjudicating sexual assault cases through development of community Sexual Assault Interagency Councils.
The Workbook is designed to complement the materials in the Guidebook, and to assist Interagency Councils with organizing and carrying out the steps for developing and implementing multi-disciplinary, multi-agency, victim-centered protocol. It has suggestions for letters, media releases, meeting agendas and other tools that may be easily adapted for use in any community.
