Local forensic health facility needs help

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Palomar Health's Forensic Health Services Department is at risk of closing, eliminating a valuable investigative resource for police, as well as a safe and informative place for sexual assault victims.

Through generous private donors, the facility has received enough money to stay open through February, but it desperately needs more so that it can continue to serve the North County community.

The facility mainly serves children and female victims of abuse and assault.

"It's children who have been abused and women who have been sexually, assaulted who go to this center and get professional expertise so that they are not re-victimized again," said District Attorney, Bonnie Dumanis.
