    Saskatoon police reach out to victims and survivors of sexual assault

    The Saskatoon Sexual Assault and Information Centre (SSAIC) is applauding a new effort by local police to put more information into the hands of victims and survivors.

    "I think it could give them some sense of control about what's going to happen," said Faye Davis, executive director of the SSAIC.

    "For survivors, they feel completely out of control after an assault like this and they don't know what steps to take next."

    "I hope it takes some of the mystery out of the process," Davis said.

    Police in Saskatoon today announced they will add a special section to their website offering extensive information to sexual assault victims and survivors outlining exactly what happens when they report an alleged crime to police.
