Law Enforcement officals

To realize that those who have been sexually assaulted very rarely report the crime due to personal shame and embarrassment. For those that do, many of them are not believed or are told that it is their fault, some are even prosecuted instead of their attacker. This causes more long term problems with recovery and sometimes causes suicides in people that are wrongfully prosecuted. For police departments to have funding to provide this training, so that more can be reported, and not have a negative experience. The police need to realize that sexual assault is more emotional than physical.  The police should handle them with care.

I want police officers and other law enforcement officers to be trained in how to approach a sexual assault victim and how to interact with them.  It is important because sexual assault isn't about sex, it's about control and that being taken away from the victim.
