The Children’s Advocacy Center of the Coastal Bend provides forensic interviews to children aged 2-17 for law enforcement and CPS in the Coastal Bend area. Our purpose is to gather information in a non-leading, non-threatening way by a well trained child forensic interviewer. All interviews are recorded allowing the agencies involved to share and obtain information without having to reinterview the child. Interviews are conducted in the CAC interview room with only the child and the interviewer present. An observation room allows for CPS and/or law enforcement to watch as the interview is being conducted.
