SANE Program Impact on the Criminal Justice System

NIJ has video available of Dr. Rebecca Campbell speaking at one of their symposiums on her research regarding SANE programs and their impact on the criminal justice system. This discussion is broken up into four segments:

  1. A background of SANE programs and how they affect prosecution of sexual assault.
  2. A description of Dr. Campbell's research on SANE programs and whether they increase prosecution rates of sexual assault.
  3. Interviews with law enforcement officers, judges and sexual assault survivors about their experiences with these programs.
  4. Information on a toolkit that Dr. Campbell developed for SANE program practitioners.

It should be noted that Dr. Cambell and her colleague Dr. Debra Patterson are the evaluators for the sustainability project, as well. You can watch the videos here.
