Course Objectives
Course Overview:
Date: June 9, 2021
Time: 9am-4pm Eastern
(with breaks and 1 hour lunch)

A critical pillar of the investigative process is the interviewing of victims, witnesses, sources and potential suspects. Imagine the direct impact, both positive and negative that the quality of the information gained and the interview and interrogation tactics used can have on the prosecution of a case. The simple truth is that the courts have already started focusing on the faulty and in some cases extremely dated methods and techniques currently in use.
The plan of action for this course is provide an updated foundation of productive as well as ethical interview and interrogation techniques. Allowing new detectives, criminal investigators and first responders to develop their skills by “trial and error” is unacceptable. The ultimate cost of legal liability and subsequent litigation is quickly reaching an unsustainable level. Especially since the problem could avoided by early training in the current science of interview and interrogation.
Participants will get to work on:
• Understanding the “Interviewer’s Impact Principle”
• Using the “4 Elements of a Successful Interview” to gain 60%+ information.
• How to avoid the 3 fatal pitfalls that devastate an interview.
• The “Strategic Use of Evidence” Tactic.
• Decoding a subject’s “Purpose of Action”
• Recordation of Interviews and Interrogations: The Growing Trend
