The Introduction to Drug Endangered Children Training Program (IDECTP) is designed to familiarize the student with the elements of the crime of child abuse as it relates to drug labs, other drug environments, and severe neglect. The IDECTP provides the investigator with the tools necessary to collect, preserve and present evidence to the prosecutor to prove the crime of felony child abuse and neglect. This program also includes recognizing the evidence of a crime, collection and preservation of evidence, understanding the careful methodology required for forensic interviews of children, presenting judicial authorities with the specific components required to obtain a search/arrest warrant and completing concise literary documentation or reports to substantiate child abuse in a drug environment.
Applicant must be a law enforcement officer/agent with arrest authority in the prevention, detection, apprehension, detention and/or investigation of felony and/or misdemeanor violations of federal, state, local, tribal, or military criminal laws or prosecutors and social workers whose duties include investigations relating to drug endangered children.
