Making A Difference for Children and Families
Traditionally, investigation of child abuse required multiple interviews of the victim by police, social services, medical personnel, attorneys, and psychologists. Each interview occurred at a different place, and rarely in a setting, to the victim, that was familiar or comfortable.
The Children's Justice Center is a homelike environment that eliminates the need for multiple interviews, and is non-threatening to victims. By utilizing the CJC, investigators can coordinate and begin the investigative process with a minimal amount of trauma to child victims of physical or sexual abuse.
State of the art audio and video equipment helps in preserving the interview for evidentiary purposes, and aids in the continued investigation process. The goal is to produce a comprehensive response in exploring allegations of abuse, provide recommendations to parents regarding safety and treatment needs of the child, and to stabilize the crises often experienced by the family.
