Q: IDENTIFY WAYS TO ENSURE THAT EVIDENCE OF ABUSE IS PRESERVED
A: The most common type of evidence available to the investigator is statements made by the victim, witness(es), alleged perpetrator, and collateral(s). [ Statements may be collected and documented by one or more of the following methods: * A personal face-to-face interview which is recorded in a factual summarization on the CPS-1; * An audio taped recording of the interview. The tape
should be preserved and may be either transcribed or summarized on the CPS-1 and filed in the case record; * An audio-visual taped recording of the interview. The tape should be preserved and may be either transcribed and placed in the investigation section of the case record or factually summarized on the CPS-1; * A written signed statement as provided by the witness. Such statements should be filed in the investigation section of the case record. Taped and written statements are particularly important as evidence in judicial proceedings where the witness attempts to recant an earlier statement made to the investigator. * The investigator will also obtain or generate a variety of documents / reports during the investigation process, which will serve as evidence to support an investigative conclusion. These statements will be used for judicial proceedings. Generated reports / documents include reports, forms, and records produced by CD staff. Obtained reports / documents include medical reports, psychological / psychiatric evaluations, police reports, written statements, etc. The investigator should take the following steps in obtaining and reviewing documents / reports that are to be used as evidence in a CA/N investigation: o Initial all pages of any original document the worker is allowed to view but not copy. This will assist the worker in identifying the document during judicial proceedings as one reviewed during the investigation. ]

User: IDENTITY WAYS TO ENSURE THAT EVIDENCE OF ABUSE IS PRESERVED

Weegy: The Council is committed to ensuring that vulnerable adults in the community will be protected and enabled to live as independently as possible in a safe environment. [ We believe that every vulnerable adult residing in one of our properties or receiving a service from us has the right to live free from abuse. Wherever possible we will work with our partners to ensure that this aim is achieved. The Council’s staff will be trained and supported in recognising and dealing with incidents of abuse. A “vulnerable adult” means anyone aged 18 or over whom because of physical or mental disability or frailty is dependent on others for their care and /or support. These procedures have been developed with reference to national guidance issued in “No Secrets” (Department of Health 2000) and guidance issued in “Guidelines for the protection of vulnerable adults from abuse” produced by Essex Vulnerable Adults Committee (Essex County Council April 2002 and March 2004) Commitment to using these procedures will enable staff to be clear about what to do when faced with an incident of abuse or where they suspect that a vulnerable adult is being abused or neglected. * A personal face-to-face interview which is recorded in a factual summarization on the CPS-1; * An audio taped recording of the interview. The tape should be preserved and may be either transcribed or summarized on the CPS-1 and filed in the case record; * An audio-visual taped recording of the interview. The tape should be preserved and may be either transcribed and placed in the investigation section of the case record or factually summarized on the CPS-1; * A written signed statement as provided by the witness. ]
