About the Editor

John Savino

In a career that spans more than thirty-four years, Det. Savino has become one of the best sex crime investigators New York City had to offer. John Savino began his law enforcement in 1982 with the New York City Police Department. He served as a patrol officer, narcotics investigator and was promoted to Detective in 1989. Detective Savino spent the last eighteen years of his career with the NYPD investigating reports of sexual assault and child abuse while assigned to the Manhattan Special Victims Squad, and was promoted to the prestigious rank of Detective 1st Grade. During his time with the Special Victims Squad he has investigated thousands of reports of rape and sexual assault and has been lead investigator for many successful serial rape and pattern sexual assault investigations. He has investigated some of the most notorious and heinous sex crimes Manhattan has ever seen. Det. Savino was tasked with rewriting policy used for investigating sexual assaults by the New York City Police Department, and created training manuals for Detectives newly assigned to the Manhattan Special Victims Squad. During his assignment with the Manhattan Special Victims Squad, he began lecturing at training classes held for Rape Advocates and Emergency Room personnel after he saw a need to bridge the gap between medical personnel and the police. He also created training material and provided training for uniformed officers and first responders on the proper response to a sexual assault, and how to interact with a sexual assault victim, and properly preserve the crime scene In September of 2001, after the World Trade Center Tragedy, Detective Savino along with an elite group of Detectives were temporality assigned to the New York City Morgue for several months and assigned the difficult task of attempting to identify the victims of the World Trade Center Disaster. His skills, dedication and attention to details carried over to this assignment and led to the identification of numerous victims of the tragedy. After twenty-five years with the NYPD, Detective Savino retired in 2007, and joined a Law Enforcement Agency in the State of Florida where he began investigating insurance fraud and complex financial crimes. In 2013, he was promoted to Lieutenant and is currently supervising a squad of detectives investigating insurance fraud and financial crimes in the State of Florida.

Reviews

"This book is easy to read and follows a logical progression from the initial call to the courts. Anyone involved in dealing with sexual assault cases in any capacity would benefit from having this book in their library of reference texts. This book would make an excellent training tool for police training agencies, nursing schools and emergency medical personnel." - www.crimeandclues.com "Many of the methods for crime scene management may seem like common sense to experienced officers but the clarity and logic of these methods is an invaluable tool for both new recruits and seasoned officers. The methods for preserving and collecting evidence are clearly presented and logical in progression." - www.crimeandclues.com
