Description: All too often suspect examinations are overlooked in a sexual assault investigation, as well as other crimes. Most law enforcement agencies, as well as forensic nurse examiner programs, have failed to establish appropriate policies and procedures for obtaining comprehensive forensic examinations for suspects.
 
The purpose of this webinar is to make the case for the importance of suspect examinations, for the collection of evidence from both the suspect’s body and clothing, to explore some of the reasons and barriers as to why they often are not done, and to provide concrete recommendations for overcoming these barriers and using suspect examinations effectively in your jurisdiction.
