Forensic Interview

The purpose of forensic interviews is to obtain the most accurate and complete information as possible from an alleged victim to assess if abuse has occurred.  CVCAC provides the technology for the investigative team to participate in the interview through closed circuit television and wireless audio equipment.

The interview is recorded, thus reducing the number of times the child must be interviewed.  Forensic Interviewers are specially trained to talk and interact with children while assessing their capabilities and gathering the legally sound facts regarding abuse allegations.  The information gathered during the forensic interview aids with criminal and child welfare investigations.
