Case reviews conducted to understand and improve sexual assault investigation outcomes prompted Washington State Legislators to mandate annual reviews as another tool in Washington’s response. The Washington Criminal Justice Training Commission (CJTC) was directed to lead this review to evaluate training benefits and gaps, and foster collaborations and ongoing education. To date, six police agencies, two prosecutor offices, and three advocacy agencies have participated. In its third year, the review has evolved to include the comprehensive lens and checklists derived from EVAWI’s OnLine Training Institute Module on Effective Victim Interviewing. As an all-inclusive document of best practices in sexual assault victim interviews, CJTC not only ensures that its training content meets these standards but can also now apply these recommendations to the annual reviews of cases around the State.

This session, presented by the CJTC Sexual Assault Investigations (SAI)-Program Manager, a retired Vancouver Police Department Sergeant, and an SAI instructor/former Executive Director of a victim advocacy organization, will explain the design and application of the Washington case review process. The presenters will also explore how others can implement an education-based case review.


As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:

  • Identify and reinforce national best practices in victim interviewing based on EVAWI’s research-based online training module and Washington CJTC trainings through case reviews.
  • Establish and maintain expectations of excellence in the delivery and impact of trainings and case reviews.
  • Examine strategies to improve communications in a community’s multi-disciplinary team through case result coordination, results, and reporting.
