SART Sexual Assault Awareness Month Conference

On Friday, April 23, 2010 the Cleveland Sexual Assault Response Team hosted its annual April Conference which featured international speaker and former LAPD Detective Trinka Porrata. Trinka defined the term drug-facilitated sexual assault and discussed the investigation of DFSAs and unique cases that she has worked with in her career.

Throughout her presentation, Trinka acknowledged not only the work of law enforcement and hospitals, but also highly recognized the work that rape crisis agencies do and the Volunteer Advocates who answer hotlines and respond to hospitals and police departments to be with survivors. The information, education and support that you as CRCC Volunteers provide to survivors, their loved ones and community members is extremely important and valuable to the entire team that will work with a survivor throughout the investigative process.
