POLICE OFFICER: Once a police officer learns that the accuser is a child, the police officer will make arrangements for the child to be interviewed at a CAC. A police officer typically will not interview a child. When determining if the accuser is a “child”, the majority of the police departments in Michigan consider a person under the ages of 15 or 16 years old to be a child. There are some exceptions to this generally followed rule. If a police officer does in fact interview a child, he/she must interview the child using the forensic protocol.
Nicole has read dozens of police reports in which a police officer interviewed a child and did NOT use the forensic protocol. If the police officer does not use the forensic protocol when talking to a child, Nicole knows exactly how to cross examine that officer and show how improper his interview was and therefore the child’s accusations should not be believed.
