About the Multi-Disciplinary Investigative Team (MDIT)

Adams County Multi-Disciplinary Investigative Team

Our team at the Adams County Children’s Advocacy Center (ACCAC) dedicates its efforts to reducing the trauma experienced by child victims of sexual abuse and severe physical abuse. We carry out our mission by employing a multi-disciplinary investigative team (MDIT) approach to cases from the initial outcry through the investigation, prosecution, and hope and healing. Our MDIT is comprised of highly-trained child abuse professionals, each with their own unique area of expertise, including law enforcement, children and youth services, prosecution, medical, and mental health.

The MDIT response provides support to child victims and non-offending caregivers by linking them to resources and ongoing therapeutic services. The coordinated and collaborative response allows investigators and detectives to share information between agencies and complete investigations more effectively and expeditiously, which leads to stronger cases for prosecution. This innovative multi-disciplinary approach significantly increases the likelihood of a successful outcome in the judicial system and long-term healing for the child, the most vulnerable of crime victims.
