Bringing Sexual Assault Offenders to Justice Roll-Call Training Video
IACP’s sexual assault roll-call training video “Bringing Sexual Assault Offenders to Justice” was developed to expand our law enforcement educational efforts on the crime of sexual assault and accompany the IACP Sexual Assault Investigative Strategies guidance and Supplemental Report Form.
The goal of this video is to help officers generate stronger cases by reframing sexual assault crimes, providing tools to conduct perpetrator focused investigations, and building an understanding of victim behavior.
“Bringing Sexual Assault Offenders to Justice” will help officers identify victim trauma and provide information about victim behavior, such as delayed reporting, alcohol or substance abuse, and encounters that start out consensually, that can be used to support a sexual assault report.
This video will also provide useful information detailing how perpetrators often have a history of unreported acts of sexual violence and may select victims with vulnerabilities to exploit.
A strong sexual assault training program will result in offenders being held accountable, fewer cases being dismissed, and ultimately increase successful prosecution.
