Their methodology was bogus. Of course they weren’t going to find SVPs/CTCs in the ROIs. That’s not how it works.
“However, we reviewed 447 cases to determine if at least one specially trained prosecutor participated in SVIP notifications, collaborations, and consultations. We identified participating prosecutors by reviewing investigation case files. We then compared the names of these prosecutors with lists (provided by the Services) of their specially trained prosecutors.”
Indeed. I doubt the name of any SVP I had assigned to my Division justice section ever showed up on an ROI. SVPs attended every sync meeting with CID and consulted on every aspect of 100% of the SV investigations/trials on which I worked as a TC. Not once did they appear on the record (although they were almost always there in the gallery) and probably never showed up on the ROI.
