Description: 

The investigation of sexual violence requires the very best from our criminal justice system. The individuals who commit these crimes, particularly those of the most violent nature, must be identified, captured, and brought to justice before they assault again. The investigation of these crimes, however, is remarkably complex and requires extensive cooperation and active communication across disciplines.This two-hour Policy and Practices Forum will convene experienced and knowledgeable subject matter experts in various fields contributing to the investigation and processing of cases involving sexual violence. The presenters, whose experience spans decades, will discuss the complex relationship between law enforcement, science, medicine, and the judicial system. As they will explain, innovative jurisdictional practices and scientific research producing valuable solutions and insight can empower our criminal justice system to better respond to acts committed by sexual predators. The result of these enhanced approaches is the better collection of evidence, faster laboratory testing, improved case management, and more reliable prosecution of offenders.
