Project Description

Project Brief

There are over 700,000 cases of child abuse in the US every year. Over 850 Child Advocacy Centers (CACs) serve the needs of these children and their families. Their mission is to protect and support children, collaborate with professionals and engage the community in ending child abuse and neglect.

A Children’s Advocacy Center is a child-friendly facility in which law enforcement, child protection, prosecution, mental health, medical and victim advocacy professionals work together to investigate abuse, help children heal from abuse, and hold offenders accountable.

A crucial element of the case management process is the recording of forensic interviews. The forensic interview is a critical first step, and it serves two purposes:

  1. Minimizing children’s trauma in the retelling of their story to the myriad of individuals and institutions that become part of their healing process.
  2. Serving as evidence for the judicial system handling the case and hopefully preventing others from falling victim to the same perpetrator.

Giving Tech Labs is creating a Video Management Solution called VidaNyx, a custom-built solution for the unique needs of Child Advocacy Centers.

“How can cloud-computing, cyber-security, and mobile technologies help to increase the capacity of these child advocacy centers?”

Results

Through research and meetings with forensic interviewers, CAC leaders and subject matter experts, we learned about the operational challenges in handling access to forensic interviews, tracking the chain of custody, running a smooth operation and ensuring long-term archiving potential to best serve the needs of the children, law enforcement, the justice system, evidence-based therapy and ultimately the liability of the CACs themselves.
