Ensure That All Persons Involved in Response to Reports Are Properly Trained

Members of the Safe Sport Department are knowledgeable and experienced in the areas of child protection, child advocacy and child abuse investigations, as well as bring general investigatory and legal experience to their roles. The Safe Sport Legal Counsel is required to take a minimum 12 hours of continuing legal education annually, with a focus on child abuse and investigation education.

Reference materials are provided to panel members based on the types of allegations they will be considering, and the organization is exploring possible training in child protection and other forms of misconduct for the individuals who volunteer serve on hearing panels.
