GAO Study Calls for Strengthened IHS Response to Sexual Assaul & Domestic Violence

  • Section 266 of the TLOA requires the Comptroller General to conduct a study of the capability of Indian Health Service (IHS) facilities in remote Indian reservations and Alaska Native villages to collect, maintain, and secure evidence of sexual assaults and domestic violence incidents required for criminal prosecution and to develop recommendations for improving those capabilities.  A final report that contains the results of this study was to be submitted to Congress within one year of the TLOA’s enactment.  Even though that deadline was not met, today GAO released its final report, a copy of which is available here.
