Alabama Act No. 2021-481 (Section 15-23-120 through Section 15-23-124, Ala. Code) created the Sexual Assault Survivor’s Bill of Rights.
Further, the Act requires the Alabama Attorney General establish a Sexual Assault Task Force. The Task Force meets several times throughout the year and consists of seventeen members appointed by various public and private entities.
The Act requires the Alabama Attorney General’s Office to provide a survivor notification document for law enforcement personnel and medical providers to aid in the initial contact with a sexual assault victim. The notification document provides law enforcement and medical providers with a valuable tool for providing the highest level of care to victims of sexual assault.
