Tele-Forensic Interview Resources

With the arrival of COVID-19, forensic interviewers across the nation are looking for innovative ways to safely conduct forensic interviews. Tele-forensic interviewing has come to the forefront as a viable and defensible option. To help support our colleagues across the country, BCAC has set up a hotline for questions regarding TFI or TFI set up: 443-934-4396. Give us a call! We’re here to help! Below are some additional resources we have put together to help you:

  • Tele-Forensic Interview Poll – Is your CAC currently conducting Tele-forensic interviews? Let us know!
  • Tele-Forensic Interview Survey – BCAC’s FI Team, with guidance from Montclair State University, developed a tele-forensic interview survey/questionnaire for interviewers and CAC staff to complete to help gather national tele-FI information for the development of future training and practice. Please take a moment to fill out this survey to aid in the development of resources that may be beneficial to your agency following each tele-forensic interview you conduct. The survey is intended to be used/completed immediately following each tele-forensic interview and can be completed multiple times.
