Investigation of Child Sexual Assault Oct 25, 2017
Cases of child sexual abuse can be among the most difficult to investigate and prosecute. The case often centers around the words of a child. The quality of investigation by law enforcement and the prosecutor’s ability to effectively present the case is a determinative factor in protecting the child from further abuse, removing child predators from the community, and protecting other children from exposure.
This is not a forensic interviewing course, but is designed to offer practical instruction to bring the case from the initial report through to a successful prosecution. This training centers around receiving and completing the investigation with use of simple and practical, yet advanced techniques. Students will learn tools such as how to best utilize witnesses, scene documentation, prior act victims, suspect medical forensic examinations, presenting the case in the courtroom and more.
This course is designed for all of those on the front lines handling child sexual assault investigations; including first responders, detectives, and prosecutors.
