Improving Police Treatment of Sexual Assault Survivors

Oct 6, 2016

Jacqueline Robarge is the director and founder of Power Inside.

The Justice Department’s critique of the Baltimore Police Department accused city police of systematically under-investigating reports of sexual assault: failing to collect evidence, interview witnesses, or test forensic evidence. We talk to Jacqueline Robarge, founder of Power Inside and an advocate for survivors of sexual abuse, about what police misunderstand about victims of trauma and what changes the city should make.
