Strategies for Enhancing Victim-Witness Testimony in Sexual Assault Cold Case Investigations

Strategies for Enhancing Victim-Witness Testimony in Sexual Assault Cold Case Investigations

Cold case investigations pose unique challenges for investigators who question victims and witnesses many years after a crime was committed. Challenges to eliciting victim-witness testimony include identifying and overcoming motivational barriers (e.g., reluctance), as well as factors related to the fallibility of human memory (e.g., source misattribution). Investigators have traditionally received little training in how to elicit cold case testimony. Drawing on examples from actual cases, this presentation will identify unique investigative challenges inherent to eliciting cold case testimony and review evidence-based strategies for enhancing victim-witness reports.

Conducting Interviews in the Virtual Environment – New Normal to Increase Access

Conducting Interviews in the Virtual Environment – New Normal to Increase Access

While it has been a long-accepted practice to interview victims of crime in person, the recent global pandemic has caused what is viewed as normal to shift. In the interest of public and personal safety it has been imperative for people to consider space and distance to avoid the spread of COVID-19. Schools have closed, court hearings have been postponed, and in some jurisdictions, interviewing crime victims had to be postponed or reimagined.

Part 2: Effective Victim Interviewing: Helping Victims Retrieve and Disclose Memories

Part 2: Effective Victim Interviewing: Helping Victims Retrieve and Disclose Memories

For victims who report sexual assault, intimate partner violence, stalking, and other traumatic incidents, the purpose of an investigative interview is to help them: (1) retrieve details of the traumatic event from memory, and (2) disclose those details to the investigator. Yet all too often sexual assault victims have faced unjustified suspicion that their report is a false allegation. Building on Part 1 in this 2-part series of workshops offered by veteran law enforcement investigators, Part 2 focuses on examining the concrete strategies and techniques involved in: (a) conducting an initial interview and preliminary investigation, (b) planning, preparing, and conducting an in-depth victim interview, (c) documenting victim statements and other investigative findings, and (d) following up with additional interviews and an evolving investigation.
