On Tuesday, 10/16 and Thursday, 10/17 Laurens County Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) conducted a Sexual Assault Response training for the Laurens County Sheriff’s Office Uniform Patrol Division, Criminal Investigations Division, and Community Services Division.  During this training Laurens County SART members from Laurens County Sheriff’s Office, 8th Circuit Solicitor’s Office, SC Attorney General’s Office, Greenville Health System, and Beyond Abuse presented information to attendees on responding to and providing best practices services to sexual assault victims in the front line.   The training was accredited through the SC Attorney General’s Office & the SC Criminal Justice Academy so that attendees could receive continuing education.  This training is a pilot training that our Laurens County SART hopes to grow and provide across the state to other Law Enforcement agencies.
