One of the essential services we provide is the facility for and coordination of forensic interviews. A forensic interview is a neutral, fact-finding interview that is legally defensible in court. The Forensic Interviewer is a highly trained professional who interviews children to help authorities and partner agencies determine if they have been sexually abused. In addition to yielding information on whether abuse has occurred, this approach produces evidence that will stand up in court if the investigation leads to criminal prosecution. Forensic interviews are legally sound because they ensure the interviewer’s objectivity, employ non-leading techniques, and emphasize accurate documentation of the interview via video recording.
