Law Enforcement Adult Sexual Assault Model Policy

In accordance with Code of Virginia § 9.1-1301 (sexual assault policies for law-enforcement agencies in the Commonwealth), all law enforcement agencies are required to have a written policy on responding to alleged criminal sexual assault. This model policy can be used or adapted by law enforcement agencies to meet this mandate, and to promote promising practices for sexual assault response and investigation.
