FORENSIC INTERVIEWS


Forensic interviews are of vital importance in the investigation and prosecution of sexual assault and other crimes against children.

DCAC is at the heart of the multi-disciplinary team that responds to allegations of child sexual abuse and cases where children have witnessed homicide or acute violence. The program operates under an agreement with the Denver Police Department, Denver District Attorney's Office, Denver Department of Human Services, and Denver Health Medical Center. Child victims are interviewed by DCAC's highly-qualified, neutral forensic interviewers, in warm, welcoming child-friendly facilities that help to mitigate their trauma. Police and prosecutors may watch the interviews in separate observation rooms so that they can gather evidence without the child being aware of their presence.

Victim advocacy plays a crucial role in minimizing trauma for child victims and their families. DCAC's victim advocate provides continuity and coordination from the moment families are first referred to DCAC to the time the criminal case is resolved or treatment is complete. The victim advocate provides reassurance to frightened children and their families, tracks their case as they proceed through the legal system, ensures the family understands their rights under the law, and coordinates their access to treatment and the difference services they may need.
