Main Areas of Responsibility:
A forensic interviewer plays an important role in ensuring the safety of children in our community. After receiving specialized training, the forensic interviewer talks to children who have potentially been abused, neglected, or have witnessed violence as a part of the investigative and safety planning process.
Additional Areas of Responsibility:
Forensic interviewers create opportunities for children’s voices to be heard in a safe, welcoming environment that centers on the needs of each child. The forensic interviewer is part of a multidisciplinary team, and coordinates closely with law enforcement, Children, Youth and Family Services, advocates, sexual assault nurse examiners, and mental health providers to ensure children throughout our community are safe and receive justice.
Bachelor’s Degree with at least three years of experience working with survivors of sexual and other violent crimes and their families is preferred (active community members without formal education are encouraged to apply); bilingual fluency in English and Spanish required, and; strong working knowledge of state and local resources.
