The Advanced Child Abuse Investigation training was implemented to improve law enforcement’s response to incidents of child abuse, neglect, and exploitation. This training combines the most up-to-date interviewing and investigative techniques for officers to handle such cases more effectively and ensure full victim restoration through the use of multidisciplinary teams.  While this training was primarily intended for law enforcement, the program invites CPS investigative staff to attend as well in order to strengthen relationships between local law enforcement and CPS staff.  Attendees will also receive investigative tools that can be used in future child abuse investigations.  Law enforcement students attending and successfully completing this training will receive 24 hours of TCOLE credit (Course # 53264).   The class now satisfies the course objectives of the mandated Missing & Exploited Children (TCOLE #3275).
