This 4-1/2 day team training program provides instruction to investigators of internet-facilitated crimes against children on the best practices for preparing a case for federal prosecution. In addition to state and local investigators from a particular jurisdiction, participants will include a federal prosecutor and a federal investigator from the same jurisdiction. This combination of attendees will create a team approach to investigating and prosecuting federal cases. Attendees will become familiar with how to investigate different kinds of leads.
Attendees will also be instructed on the elements of federal child exploitation statutes as well as specific features of the federal judicial process as it relates to child exploitation investigations and prosecutions. Critical resources for investigators, such as deconfliction and NCMEC’s CyberTipline, will be discussed in detail.
