Our Sex Crimes for Patrol and New Investigators Training is a very intense seminar that is both informative and hands on. Sex crimes are some of the most complex and complicated crimes you will have to respond to in your career. It is very important that the students understand that this class will focus on how the tactics used by stalkers and rapists of adult victims, in many cases, are the same tactics that predators, molesters, and pedophiles use on their child victim. This course will focus on the three main components of these types of crimes: the predator’s behavior, the crime, and our response.
