Mark your calendar for the training session: Ensuring an Effective Investigation of Serious Incidents
March 28-29, 2017
Conducting an investigation relating to allegations of abuse, neglect and/or exploitation or other unusual incidents is much more than simply talking to individuals. There is a methodology that should be used to elicit the appropriate information that is necessary to validate or dismiss allegations. Learning both the methodology and techniques will help facilitate an unbiased, comprehensive investigation that will allow your organization to make effective changes in training, take corrective action if the allegations are substantiated and ensure a standard process for such reviews.
Following feedback from prior participants in the training program offered through NJACP, this program has been revised, updated and will utilize more current training methods including videos, role play, sample reports, among other techniques. In addition, the workshop is now two rather than three days; the same comprehensive training will be provided and participants may elect to take a test if he/she so desires and receive certification, however, it is compressed into two days, thereby limiting the amount of time an individual is absent from the agency. And finally, to ensure there is consistency, NJACP will consult with DHS’ OPIA (Office of Program Integrity & Accountability) to gain an understanding of their investigatory process, identify the most common reported incidents, and learn of investigations that have been conducted where there are questionable practices or gaps in information.
