In 2020, 595.202 RSMo established the Task Force.  Per statute, we are to “Collect feedback from stakeholders, practitioners, and leadership throughout the state and local law enforcement, victim services, forensic science practitioners, and health care communities to inform development of future best practices or clinical guidelines regarding the care and treatment of survivors.”
 
Public hearings will be held via WebEx on August 25, September 14, September 22 and September 28 to solicit testimony on following themes:

  • Standard Practices
  • Survivor Privacy
  • Funding
  • Evidence Collection 
Please visit https://dps.mo.gov/dir/programs/cvsu/task-force.php for more information on the public hearings.

You can share your experience as a survivor in any of these topic areas. We want to know what was helpful in your healing and what Missouri can do to improve. Testimony will be accepted during the hearings and by completing this survey. The survey will close September 30, 2021.

All responses are subject to public viewing and may be included in a public final report. Comments should not include personal or sensitive information that you do not wish to make public.
