CAC Benefits to Communities

Using an MDT approach facilitates collaboration and reduces the duplication of efforts. This approach has been shown to save $1318 per investigation. We accomplish this by:

  • Facilitating a more immediate follow-up by the MDT to child abuse reports
  • Facilitating medical and mental health referrals for a more efficient response
  • Reducing the number of duplicative child victim interviews
  • Strengthening cases for successful prosecution
  • Providing specialized training and education opportunities for professionals involved in the investigation, prosecution and treatment of child abuse
