These sexual assault response guidelines are offered for use by law enforcement agencies responsible for investigating and reporting incidents of sexual assault within their jurisdiction and may be used in conjunction with the law enforcement agency’s existing general operating procedures. It is not intended to alter the independent authority of law enforcement agencies to conduct the investigation of a sexual assault complaint within their jurisdiction nor does it alter the authority of a county prosecutor pursuant to ORC 309.08 to inquire into crimes committed within the county.
