Pt. 3: Improving investigative strategies to strengthen cases


After completing Part 3, officers will be able to: 

  • Recognize that sexual assault is a drastically underreported crime and identify the main reasons why survivors choose not to report. 
  • Understand the benefits of being trauma-informed and victim-centered to build rapport, properly gather evidence, and propel the case. 
  • Strategize the use of technology, coordinated communication, and collaboration with multidisciplinary teams to improve the resolution of sexual assault cases.  
  • Utilize best practices in investigating perpetrators and interviewing witnesses to build stronger cases.
