Bias in Sexual Assault Investigations

Close

In a sexual assault investigation the law enforcement investigator’s mental approach should always be neutral without biases. If bias is detected by any of the parties involved then the investigators credibility as a law enforcement officer will be questioned. If the credibility and reliability of the investigation is questionable then a sexual offender may be released back into the community and/or an innocent person can be sent to jail/prison for a crime he/she didn’t commit. In this video Lawrence W. Daly, Chief Sexual Assault Investigative Educator for the One Daly Corporation raises several issues surrounding the concerns of biases in a sexual assault investigation.
