Officers, young and old alike, are great at giving commands, such as: “let me see your license and registration”. Yet it’s amazing to observe how many shrink from going beyond this superficial communication to spending real time digging up critical information. Many officers have just one style and if it doesn’t work they get easily frustrated, argue with the suspect and quit.
It’s this information that is the lifeblood of good investigations and the genesis behind our basic interviews and interrogations course. This course provides the critical tools, proven techniques, and teaches the skills you need to succeed. This course is full of entertainment throughout due to the real experiences and war stories from our instructors, which we translate into practical applications and greater insights for students.
This course is designed to provide investigators with proven techniques that can be applied in various accusatory and non-accusatory interview situations. Participants will develop skills in preparing for the interrogation with a game plan, which emphasizes a proactive, rather than reactive role.
