Introduction to Sexual Assault Investigation for the Rural Executive ONLINE

Rural law enforcement executives have the opportunity to have a significant influence on those they supervise and on their community’s attitude toward sexual assault. They are responsible for creating and maintaining an environment that supports a victim-centered response to sexual assault. This course will enhance the capability of rural law enforcement personnel to manage and investigate sexual assault cases in their community.

Topics include the dynamics of sexual assault, recognizing victim trauma, the benefits of a team approach to sexual assault investigation, creating a department sexual assault policy and procedure along with self-assessment tools, understanding the medical-forensic examination, alcohol/drug facilitated sexual assault, handling media relations, and developing sexual assault cases from the prosecutor’s perspective. Obstacles, resources and benefits to the department will also be
explored.

This is a 18-hour class.
