When the Child Abuser Carries a Badge

Course Description

How do you investigate child abuse cases when the suspect is a law enforcement officer? This workshop analyzes a series of case studies in which perpetrators sought to exploit the authority of the badge by abusing vulnerable youth and avoiding the consequences. Team-taught by a forensic interviewer and former prosecutor, the presentation will highlight practical investigative, prosecutorial, and forensic interview considerations for these complex cases.

Learning Objectives

1. Articulate grooming tactics used by perpetrators who exploit the authority of law enforcement positions.

2. Identify offender strategies to avoid accountability for exploitation.

3. List relevant offender behaviors and sources of evidence beyond the charged conduct.
