In 2009, over 11,300 untested rape kits were discovered in a Detroit Police Department property storage facility. In this webinar, Kym Worthy, Wayne County Prosecutor will discuss why the kits went untested for decades and the importance of utilizing a victim-centered approach when notifying victims that their case has been re-opened. In addition, she will provide insights into the investigative process and what prosecutors need to successfully charge and convict offenders in cold case sexual assaults.
"I spent 10 years as a law enforcement legal instructor at a police academy and this presentation...would be invaluable to any law enforcement officer."
"I was extremely impressed with the level of expertise of the guest speakers. Each session was well presented, and it was an extreme pleasure to attend."
"I will be a better prosecutor because of this training and my additional understanding of DNA."
