Will I be required to have a Sexual Assault Forensic Exam (SAFE) conducted?

No one can order you to have a SAFE conducted. If a SAFE kit is an option for you, you will have to give your consent prior to having it completed. At your request, the healthcare provider will arrange for a SAFE to be conducted. While you are not required to have a SAFE, such an exam may result in the collection of valuable evidence that will aid investigators.  You can consent to some procedures and decline others.
