    Abstract

    This research aimed to identify the procedures in place for police officers to investigate a female rape complaint and to critically analyse the effectiveness of these, to critically examine how the police perceive female rape complaints, and to identify the changes in police treatment of rape victims. It then sought to identify how specialist training has impacted on the investigation of rape cases. In addition, the rape myths and misunderstandings held by society were explored, before suggesting if such myths still impact on the investigation.
