This Seminar is intended to assist field level personnel in the successful investigation of sex offenses, particularly those committed against children. This extensive training is provided at no cost to attendees.
Topics to be presented include: understanding sex offenders, forensic interviewing, victimology, the medical evaluation of child victims, using forensic sciences in the investigation of sex offenses, internet crimes against children, controlled phone calls, crime scene investigations, and legal perspectives.
