On-Line Sexual Assault Training Institute Launches Successfully

Nearly 200 professionals have already enrolled in the On-Line Training Institute (OLTI) since it launched one month ago. The enrollees are from 41 states and half of them are law enforcement. EVAW International developed the state-of-the-art training tool, which is intended for law enforcement as well as other professionals involved in the criminal justice and community response to sexual assault. Ann Burdges, a former police officer and current executive director of a free-standing sexual assault center, welcomed the new program. “I am so appreciative of this great information that benefits numerous aspects of response to persons victimized by crimes of sexual violence,” said Burdges, who heads up the Gwinnett Sexual Assault Center & Children’s Advocacy Center in Duluth, Georgia.
The OLTI promotes a multi-disciplinary community response with particular emphasis on sex crimes committed by someone who is known to the victim (i.e. non-strangers). Enrolling in the OLTI is a simple process, and any professional interested in finding out more can enroll in an introductory module absolutely free of charge. The introductory module is entitled, “Effective Report Writing: Using the Language of Non-Consensual Sex,” and it is designed to help investigators conduct a preliminary victim interview and write a report that will support successful prosecution.
