Rape Victims in South Orange County

For the past 22 years, the only rape evidence collection center in Orange County has been in Anaheim. This means over a 50 mile drive for some women who are already traumatized. According to the officers we have spoken with, these traumatized victims cannot face that. The evidence goes uncollected. The perpetrator can go free.
One argument we get is that personnel need to be trained to preserve the chain of evidence. There are an abundance of nurses trained in this area now.
A second argument is that a mobile van comes to South Orange County to take the evidence. What they do not mention is that this is only in the case of victims who are hospitalized. Most victims are not.
Please contact the County Supervisors and tell them that we deserve better than this.
