The Kentucky Multidisciplinary Commission on Child Sexual Abuse, staffed by the Office of the Attorney General, has prepared a model protocol for local multidisciplinary teams regarding investigation and prosecution of child sexual abuse and the role of the children's advocacy center on multidisciplinary teams (KRS 431.660). The model protocol provides an extensive description of each team member's role and responsibility. The statute requires protocols to be developed in each county or group of contiguous counties by the team (KRS 431.600).
Each team should submit a protocol, with signatures of all team members, to the Commission. Many teams have already provided protocols. To determine whether a county has submitted a protocol, contact
KMCCSA@ky.gov. In order to simplify the process of drafting a model protocol, a model protocol template has been developed. Teams submitting a new protocol should use the template rather than submitting the full model protocol. To receive a template by email, contact
KMCCSA@ky.gov Any questions can be directed to the Office of Victims Advocacy by email or phone (502-696-5312).
