Sexual Assault Training & Investigations

Below are just a few of the comments that have been received from professionals who have trained with Sgt. Joanne Archambault:

"Thank you for the wonderful training offered last week in Yakima. As the new Executive Director of a start-up Child Advocacy Center, I found your presentation to be thorough, detailed, intriguing and thought provoking. I hope to utilize the information gained to continue to build relationships with local law enforcement for the good of all children in the Wenatchee Valley and North Central Washington. My sincere appreciation to you for the work that you do on behalf of children. I hope to be able to participate in your future training events in our area."

"Joanne, we are still receiving very positive feedback about the training you did for us. I can share with you that in a recent case, I was called as a witness and the prosecutor used me to educate the jury of the reasons a victim delays reporting and pointed to your training as a source. Thanks again and I'm very happy to have you as the expert connection!"

"Dear Joanne, as a victim/survivor advocate I wish to thank you for coming to Australia. It doesn't matter what you know but how you use it. I was impressed with not only yourself but the other workers who came to the conference. I look forward to using the information, passion, commitment and care that you showed us as guiding your career and practice in working in my own community in the Blue Mountains,outside Sydney. We coomence our project on friday and your website will be a valuable resource."

"I want to thank you for the outstanding job you did in Boulder, CO. I really enjoyed the class. I believe it was the best sexual assault training I have ever had. I would love to go through the 40 hour class. Again, thank you."
Sgt. Alfredo Nevarez
Erie Police Department


"I recently attended your one day seminar in Great Falls, MT. I just wanted to compliment you. It is such an honor to have had the opportunity to learn so much in such a short period of time. I wish you would have had more than one day! I'm a knowledge junkie, and feel like I can never learn enough when it comes to my job. So many times we attend workshops and training that is interesting, but not very useful when it comes to day to day work. Everything you had to say is USEFUL! Thank you for giving me so much information to bring home to my department."

"Detective Sergeant Archambault helps law enforcement audiences understand that treating victims with sensitivity and respect is important not only to reduce victim trauma, but also to build stronger cases against sex offenders."
Alexandra Walker
Former victim advocate 
Sexual Assault Policy Consultant

"Sgt. Joanne Archambault is nothing short of visionary. She is clearly the nation's foremost expert on the police investigation of sexual assault. In her work, Sgt. Archambault has an unparalleled ability to identify those areas of current practice that can be improved, and to envision completely new ways in which the system can better serve both the interests of justice and the welfare of victims. In her training, Sgt. Archambault encourages participants to challenge current ways of thinking and develop practical strategies for improving the law enforcement investigation of sexual assault in their jurisdiction. Always dynamic and interactive, her training does not allow participants to passively observe, but creates an environment in which concrete techniques are explored and -- more importantly -- practiced in real world applications."

"Joanne Archambault is the leading expert in the United States about investigating acquaintance rape cases. Her well thought out approach will assist law enforcement agencies in increasing their clearance rates, improving prosecution, rendering better service to the victims and reducing property/evidence storage problems. Joanne's class is a must for every investigator."
