In recognition of the Denim Day sexual assault prevention, education and awareness campaign, Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón announced today the creation of a working group to provide the office's Bureau of Victim Services with guidance on how to better serve sexual assault victims.
The group of experts and advocates will examine best patterns and practices from throughout the country and explore what other efforts can be. made in dealing with sexual assault cases, according to the District Attorney's Office.
"My office will continue to aggressively prosecute sexual assault cases as we work to make our community safer and healthier,'' the district attorney said in a statement. ``We must make sure survivors of sexual assault have access to trauma-informed support and services for healing.''
