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.
