Intragency Sexual Assault Team

In 2017, District Attorney Margaret Moore saw the need for coordination amongst law enforcement, prosecutors, forensic technicians, and victim advocate representatives to enhance the effectiveness with regard to the response, investigation, and prosecution of adult sexual assaults and to ensure that victim needs were being addressed. This lead to the creation of the Intragency Sexual Assault Team (ISAT). See list of other participant agencies and learn more about ISAT
