As part of the training and technical assistance offered to grantees under the Bureau of Justice Assistance’s Sexual Assault Kit Initiative (SAKI), this report describes the features of the SAKI Virtual Academy, an online learning platform that provides five e-learning curricula that address the key steps in sexual assault response reform.
The National Sexual Assault Kit Initiative Training and Technical Assistance (SAKI TTA) team provides a range of training and technical assistance to SAKI sites regarding investigating and prosecuting cases, inventorying and tracking sexual assault kits (SAKs), and engaging victim advocates.
