PREA Investigators Course





TOPIC:  Crimes involving sexual violence can be the most difficult cases to investigate - especially when those crimes occur inside the walls of a correctional facility.  Identifying the nature of the assault, the impact of inmate culture, and the complex nature of the investigation itself are just a few of the problems an investigator encounters when taking on a case of this kind.  It takes a highly trained investigator to recognize and effectively gather the evidence necessary to successfully prosecute these offenders.

"Prison Rape and Sex Assault Investigations Inside Correctional Facilities is a criminal investigation course developed pursuant to PREA standards 115.34 & 115.71, requiring investigators receive specialized training for conducting sex abuse investigations in confined settings."

By use of print materials, videos, pictures, and accounts of events that have occurred, this course will provide the attendee with the specialized training needed to investigate sex crimes that occur inside a correctional facility.

Training will cover:

  • Impact of Inmate Culture Upon Sexual Violence
  • Suspect and Victim Interviews & Interrogation Tactics
  • Elements of an Effective Investigation
  • Distinguishing between Consensual & Non-consensual Acts
  • Use & Application of Miranda and Garrity Warnings
  • Anticipating the Suspect’s Legal Defenses
  • Reports that Win Cases
  • Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) Considerations
  • How to get your Prosecutor ONBOARD
