 Sexual Assault Response Team (SART)

For more information phone 619-285-6429 or send us an email.

Facilities where these Services are offered:


SART, the Sexual Assault Response Team of San Diego County, is a victim-sensitive program designed to provide a team approach to responding to sexual assaults in our community.

The team consists of a specially trained nurse examiner to provide an evidentiary examination and medical support, a law enforcement officer to conduct an investigation and provide emergency assistance, and a victim advocate who is there to provide emotional support, referrals, and information to the victim.

Thousands of victims have been assisted and counseled by the SART team. Before SART, most victims endured the aftermath of assault by themselves, feeling frightened and alone.

The San Diego SART program has been very successful in meeting the needs of sexual assault victims and is now perceived as a nationwide leader.
