If you are a victim of domestic violence or sexual assault, you have the right to receive medical treatment. An advocate can explain your options and accompany you to the appointment to support you through the process of physical evidence collection, medical treatment, or a SANE exam.
What is the Wisconsin Sexual Assault Kit Initiative?
The Wisconsin Sexual Assault Kit Initiative (WiSAKI) is a statewide effort to address the accumulation of unsubmitted sexual assault kits (SAKs) in the possession of local law enforcement agencies and hospitals. Initiated by the Attorney General’s Sexual Assault Response Team (AG SART) and led by the Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ), WiSAKI is a collaborative effort among law enforcement, victim advocates, sexual assault nurse examiners, prosecutors, health care systems, and the Wisconsin State Crime Lab (WSCL).
