Acknowledgments

The Vera Institute of Justice project team consisted of Allison Hastings, Ram Subramanian, Margaret diZerega, Vedan Anthony-North, and Tara Graham. Vera would like to thank Kim Kelberg and Jasmine D’Addario-Fobian at the Office for Victims of Crime for their support and guidance. Vera would also like to acknowledge key individuals involved in the Sexual Assault Response Teams in Corrections Project (SARTCP), which was the basis for this guide. From the Johnson County Department of Corrections in Kansas, we thank Betsy Gillespie, Antonio Booker, Bruce Rider, David McKune, Amy Rozelle, Jodi Taylor, Mary Ann Pitnick, Linda Hadel, and Ellen Hawks. From community agencies serving Johnson County, we thank Angie Blumel at the Metropolitan Organization to Counter Sexual Assault; Jennifer Johnson at the Shawnee Mission Medical Center; and Chris McMullin and Misty Campbell at the Johnson County District Attorney’s Office. We also wish to thank Shirley Fessler from the Kansas Coalition Against Sexual and Domestic Violence. To aid in project implementation, Vera consulted with Jennifer Feicht, Kristin Littel, and evaluator Chris S. O’Sullivan, with the assistance of University of Missouri–Kansas City faculty Kristi Holsinger, Toya Like, and Jessica Hodge. Allison Hastings, Ram Subramanian, and Kristin Littel wrote and Jules Verdone edited this guide.
