Overview: This training will give you fundamentals when conducting Sexual assault Investigations, collecting information over the internet and conducting interviews. Sexual assault cases in the United States are often under reported and one reason is how the initial investigation handles the victim. Sexual assaults also sometimes begin with communications over the internet and it is important that you are able to identify how the case originated as well as collecting the information over the internet.

Audience: This training is for all investigators and initial responders so that evidence can be secured, collected and preserved. It's important to be able to gather information and evidence without contamination as well as providing for the victim.

Investigating Sexual assault cases involves not only being able to solve the case, it also involves using the proper investigative techniques as well as different interviewing and interrogation techniques.
