Child abuse investigations are some of the most heart wrenching and difficult for a criminal investigator to pursue. Nevertheless, they are a requirement of the role. Investigators must stay focused on the investigative and legal requirements for thorough, unbiased, and legally sufficient investigations in order to present the evidence in a court of law. Select any high-profile child victim case (e.g., Susan Smith, JonBenet Ramsey, Polly Klaas, Jessica Lunsford, etc.) and discuss what you would do to prevent your personal opinions, feelings, and biases to negatively affect the criminal investigation.
