Who Makes Up the C.A.R.T. Team?
The C.A.R.T. Team is a multidisciplinary group of highly skilled professionals who are committed to improving their response to the victims of child abuse. Caring professionals recognize that to better help the children suffering from abuse, they need to share information and work together. The C.A.R.T. Team includes individuals from law enforcement, child welfare, prosecution, medical personnel, mental health, forensic interviewers, and
the C.A.R.T. House staff.
Members of the multidisciplinary team (MDT) are representatives from:
El Reno Police Department
Yukon Police Department
Mustang Police Department
Union City Police Department
Piedmont Police Department
Department of Human Services- Canadian County
Red Rock-Canadian County
Canadian County CASA

Child Advocacy Center Staff
MDT interventions in a neutral, child-focused CAC setting are associated with less anxiety, fewer interviews, and more appropriate and
timely referrals for needed services.
