Criminal Justice System Training

One of the ways in which Rape Crisis builds strong working relationships within the Criminal Justice System is through its interactions with police, nurses, doctors, prosecutors and magistrates.  Training is needed by all these related professions because working with rape survivors is a specialised field not covered extensively in their basic curricula.  We do also do sessions within some of the basic curricula as well, such as our work with UCT medical students.  We aim to improve the quality of services to survivors through this training programme in the hopes that this will keep survivors in the system right up until the perpetrator is convicted.
