Drug Facilitated Sexual Assault

Drug Facilitated Sexual Assault

drug facilitated sexual assault investigations
Have you ever been absolutely confused when investigating a rape allegation that involves drugs or alcohol? Do you have the necessary training in investigation of Drug Facilitated Sexual Assault, or DFSA?

According to a 2005 study, about 1/3 of all sexual assaults are facilitated by the use of a drug. Many of those cases fall through the cracks because of a lack of training for the investigating or responding officers.

Learn to Investigate Drug Facilitated Sexual Assault

By taking this course, you will better be able to detect a drug facilitated sexual assault and investigate it properly so you can have a successful prosecution and bring justice to the victim.

I put this course together over a decade ago, and have continuously updated it, because I watched too many DFSA cases fall through the cracks. I searched for training in how to investigate these cases and came up empty. All I could find were awareness courses. I wanted a course that taught me how to investigate DFSA.

I put this course together after speaking with experienced prosecutors, dedicated DFSA detectives, drug recognition experts and my own experience investigating DFSA and drug cases.
