What is a Child Forensic Interview?
A child forensic interview at a CAC is an age and developmentally appropriate, information-gathering interview of an alleged child victim of a crime or a child witness to a violent crime.
Forensic Interviews follow a semi-structured forensic interview protocol designed to be non-leading and non-suggestive and always prioritizing the needs and safety of the child.
What is a Multidisciplinary Team?
CACs utilize a multidisciplinary team approach to investigate and intervene in cases involving allegations of crimes against children to ensure a child-focused approach. An MDT consists of the following professionals:
Law Enforcement • Child Protective Services • Prosecution • Victim Advocacy • Medical Personnel • Mental Health Personnel • Child Advocacy Centers
