All of Kentucky’s 120 counties were given an April 1 deadline to submit a protocol for their county based on the model released last year, 2015. The protocol is the best practice standard that lays out the role of each agency involved in the process of serving the victim, known as multidisciplinary teams.  The commonwealth’s attorney’s office for each county is responsible for writing the protocol that doesn’t have to exactly mirror other counties but must at the very least include everything from the model created at the state level.

The Bowling Green Daily news has published a story and further information about the protocol.  Please visit
