Law Enforcement Sexual Assault Response Training

Prepare Officers with Trauma-Informed Knowledge

According to FBI statistics, over the course of their careers, law enforcement officers average just two hours of training in sexual assault response. This lack of training often leaves law enforcement officers inadequately prepared to handle sexual trauma cases. This training is critically important to make first responders aware of how trauma presents differently in victims of sexual assault, as well as how to more effectively approach individuals with compassion.

Sherrie Allsup provides comprehensive sexual assault response training that equips law enforcement officers to employ correct, trauma-informed strategies in sexual assault cases.
