Case Conversion Instructions and Forms

EVAWI’s template materials for non-investigative reporting include instructions and forms to document a victim’s choices among a variety of options for the response of health care providers and law enforcement officials. Language and documentation are therefore included to guide victims through the process of case conversion. Similar language is provided in the Minnesota Model Policies for Forensic Compliance.

Sample forms are also available for documenting a victim’s consent to release evidence from a medical forensic exam to law enforcement for use in a standard investigative process. Examples are provided from (1) the Texas Department of Public Safety, (2) Duluth, Minnesota, and (3) the Trauma Recovery Center at the University of California, San Francisco.

Archived Webinar

An archived webinar is available on the EVAWI website, entitled Prosecuting Converted Cases. It addresses a range of issues such as: “What should we call these cases?” “How are they viewed?” “How should they be investigated?” “How do we overcome challenges for prosecution?”
