Cultural considerations should be integrated into the daily operations and protocol development of the CAC. The CAC needs to review policies and procedures for services to families throughout the life of the case, not just at the forensic interview. CACs should conduct a community assessment, at a minimum every three years, of the demographics of your community in order to identify un-served or under-served populations.
