Sexual Assault Investigation

Mount Vernon, Washington - August 19-20, 2024

Sexual assault cases are some of the most challenging types of investigations that criminal investigators face. Delays in reporting, uneasy victims, lack of evidence, and credible suspects often reduce the likelihood of successful prosecution. Participants in this course, whether new investigators or seasoned veterans, will learn innovative, courtroom-proven investigative techniques. Attendees will examine types and sources of evidence, rapport building with victims, suspect interview techniques, supportive services, beneficial pretrial motions, case law, and issues surrounding false reports. Case studies illustrate key points.

The course instructors are veteran sexual assault investigators who offer proven methods and are passionate about conducting aggressive investigations that lead to positive outcomes. Participants will leave with increased understanding, tools to conduct more in-depth investigations, resources to better manage victims, and tactics to obtain information from suspects.

This training is recommended for officers new to law enforcement, veteran investigators, and police supervisors.
