Trauma Informed Sexual Assault Investigation: Realities and Investigative Strategies

The Ohio Attorney General's Interpersonal Violence Response Training Team presents the Trauma Informed Sexual Assault Investigation: Realities and Investigative Strategies training event. The goal of the training program is to strengthen the capacity of law enforcement and prosecutors to provide an effective response to victims of sexual assault from initial report through prosecution. At the completion of this training, participants will be able to:
  • Describe how specific experiences impact victims of trauma memory, reactions and behavior, and how officer interpretation of this behavior impacts sexual assault investigations.
  • Identify the role of the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (or RN) in gathering information for your investigation and prosecution.
  • Explain how key decisions made by law enforcement impact the progression of a sexual assault investigation.
  • Recognize that victim disclosure often occurs in pieces over time and identify strategies for working with victims to facilitate trust and communication.
  • Conduct victim interviews and document sexual assault cases utilizing physical, psychological, and sensory evidence to effectively build a strong case.
  • Provide prosecutors with a lens into the investigative process and how to communicate evidentiary expectations to law enforcement and trial strategies.
