Sexual Assault Taskforce

In 2018, Commerce City and Brighton worked together to create an innovative, victim-centered way to handle sex crimes and centralize sexual assault investigations between the two jurisdictions. The Commerce City-Brighton Sexual Assault Taskforce (SATF), the first initiative of its kind in Colorado, provides an integrated approach to the response and investigation of sex crimes.
