The training manual defines the police role in investigation and intervention in child abuse cases. Information is categorized according to the following seven topic areas (subtopics in parentheses): defining child abuse and neglect (physical and behavioral indicators), legal aspects (trends in reporting laws and major points in state reporting laws), the investigation process (types of police contacts and strategies and issues in interviewing the child), police disposition of cases (referral to community agencies, arrests, referral for prosecution), and the relationship between police and social service workers. A final chapter describes resources for the trainer, including audiovisual aids, organization, and a comparison of state statutes. (CL)
