Death, Injury & Sexual Violence Scene for the First Responder

Length of Seminar: 2.5 Days
Instructor: Thomas G. Tittle

Course Overview:

Patrol officers are often the first responders on cases involving physical and sexual violence. The legal complexity of these cases requires special handling from the moment of arrival. This course is designed for officers and investigators with limited experience in handling cases of this nature. It provides a comprehensive examination of sex crimes, death scenes, suicide, and common injuries associated with violence, and addresses 4th Amendment considerations.

Participants will review highly graphic and intense materials from actual incidents, and gain insight to the motives of sexual perpetrators, including sexually violent juveniles. Common aspects of trauma and injury and related evidence will be explored, along with strategies for investigating deviant sexual behavior.

Upon Completion:
Participants will be able to:

Immediately secure and assess the crime scene

Understand the nature of deviant sexual behavior

Identify cases of shaken baby syndrome
