Forensic InterviewsFebruary 11, 2022 10:29 pm
Forensic interviews are conducted by professionals specially trained to ask child victims a series of unbiased, non-leading questions to elicit information about the abuse in an age and developmentally appropriate manner. During the interview, the child and the interviewer meet one-on-one in a room specially equipped with cameras. This allows our partners in law enforcement and the Department of Human Resources to observe the interview in real time from a nearby room. They are able to communicate with the interviewer via an IPad during the interview, so they can collect evidence for their investigations. Our forensic interviews minimize trauma by ensuring that the child is able to provide the account in their own words and only has to detail the abuse to one adult. Interviews are recorded to preserve evidence for prosecution.
