Denver police promise to respond faster to rapes

The Associated Press Published: September 12, 2013

DENVER — Denver police are promising to improve their rape response policy because of long delays for victims.

The new policy is designed to get an officer to the hospital faster and allow hospital staffers to begin exams before police respond if necessary.

According to the Denver Post (http://tinyurl.com/l5vxzol ), police dispatchers were giving a lower priority for waiting sexual assault victims because they believed victims were no longer in immediate danger once they were admitted to a hospital.
