 TOPIC: This course is designed to equip the investigator with the tools and techniques necessary to successfully investigate sex crimes against children and adults.

Sex crimes exact a heavy toll upon our victims and communities. The stakes are especially high when it comes to children. These cases are inherently complex and pose unique problems for any detective. It takes a highly skilled investigator to catch these offenders and build solid cases for the prosecution.

  • Offender Typology – What it is and how to use it

  Investigation & Interrogation Tactics

Special Problems for Sex Crime Investigators
