Police response to the escalating numbers of child sexual abuse cases has led to the development of a wide range of organizational models within both police departments and the interagency context. This paper compares the results of different models of police intervention in New South Wales, Australia. The data suggest that specialist police units in which police manage the full investigation provide a more comprehensive service than those where the police response is fragmented between units within the police force.
