Aims and Features
VERBUM SAT is aimed to establish a coordinated contribution to law enforcement by developing an appropriate victim centered approach that is able to address the specific needs and provide protections required by child victims of abuse and exploitation. The project proposes a thoroughly non-invasive method in the form a forensic statement analysis that will forego the need for repeated interviews and sessions with children. The object of investigation will be reduced to the initial statement given by the victim. This will exclude victims from the whole process and offer an objective technique to get relevant information needed to resolve the forensicand legal process in question. To achieve these objectives, project activities will be primarily directed towards the implementation of forensic statement analysis (FSA) by training law enforcement experts in this innovative forensic tool specialized for combating CAE.
