Monday AM: Carol Tracy Discusses Police Response to Sexual Assault on CBC  

Listen live!

At 7:40AM Monday morning, Women’s Law Project Executive Director Carol Tracy will be interviewed live on Canadian radio program The Morning Edition with Craig Norris.

Carol will be sharing insight from our experience working with the Philadelphia Police Department to reform police response to sexual assault, including the innovative annual advocate-led review of sex crime files that is now celebrated as a best practice.

While we frequently field requests for information about improving police response to sexual assault, Canadian reporters and advocates have been especially interested in our work since February, when The Globe and Mail published “Unfounded,” a 20-month investigation into how Canadian police handle—and mishandle—rape cases.

The investigation revealed that one of every five sexual-assault allegations in Canada is dismissed as baseless and thus unfounded. The CBC just published a new report about efforts to address “unfounded” cases.
