Speakers Detective Rich Wistocki and Detective and Timothy Parent, Rachel Rieger

Investigator Rachel Rieger (Ret.) has dedicated her career in Law Enforcement to advocating for and seeking justice on behalf of children that are victims of sexual abuse and assault.  Graduating with a degree in Social Work and Spanish, Investigator Rieger worked first as a Child and Family Advocate in the DuPage County State’s Attorney’s Office prior to becoming a Police Officer and Investigator in 2005. During her time at the State’s Attorney’s Office, assigned to the Child Advocacy Center, Rieger interviewed thousands of victims, witnesses and perpetrators in child sexual abuse investigations.  She assisted other law enforcement jurisdictions and the FBI with their forensic interviews of children and with providing testimony in court on their investigations.  She has interviewed and been involved in the arrest of hundreds of sexual predators and interpreted for many polygraph examinations, where she has been able to hear first-hand accounts from the perpetrators how they lured and manipulated, exploited and abused children.  She was certified as a Juvenile Officer in 2006 and was involved in many investigations where minors were the alleged perpetrators of the sexual violence.  She was involved in providing training and instruction to other detectives and to the Department of Child and Family Services (DCFS) on how to respond to children that made a disclosure of sexual abuse.  Currently a stay-at-home mom to her five children, Rieger continues in speaking and providing training to organizations that have a desire to learn how we can be involved in the fight to protect our children against childhood sexual abuse.  

Child crime expert Detective Richard Wistocki has dedicated his career to helping children by tirelessly pursuing, apprehending and prosecuting child predators.  As an active Cyber Crimes Detective he educates Law Enforcement using cutting edge investigative techniques and Parents and Students on responsible digital activity.
