Forcible Rape: Police Administrative and Policy Issues. Police Volume IV.
Battelle Memorial Inst., Seattle, WA. Law and Justice Study Center.
Major rape policy issues confronting police administrators are presented. Some of the issues addressed include: (1) Should rape calls be handled by a patrol officer, a trained patrol specialist, or some type of special unit? (2) How should rape investigators be selected? (3) What kind of training is necessary for rape investigators? (4) How can interaction between police, victim service groups and medical facilities be encouraged? A number of administrative strategies are recommended. At a more general level, the report discusses the scope of departmental policy, such as which decisions should be policy-based and which are best handled case-by-case. Report forms for collecting and recording case evidence are appended. (Author/RF)
