Advanced Interviews & Interrogations

This course on advanced Interviews and
Interrogations is designed for street officers or
investigators interested in furthering their
interview and interrogation skills.  It is
recommended that the student have taken a
preliminary course in interviews and
interrogations upon which this course will build.  
This course will not cover the basic interview
techniques covered in a preliminary course.  
This course will concentrate on two aspects of
the interview and Interrogation.  The first is
meaningful behavior with the structured
interview.  The Second is the interrogation itself
to obtain a confession.  After each phase of
training the student  will take part in numerous
class exercises to practice the techniques
learned. The techniques that are taught in this
course have been tried, tested and proven to
work in real life situations.
The Course

The course is accompanied by the text "An Investigator’s Guide To Interviews and
Interrogations." by John Bowden.  The presentation of the course is by lecture
accompanied by videos,  and numerous handouts.  The course is supported by practical
application exercises that allow the students to practice the skills and techniques taught
during the course.   Students will also review videos of real interrogations and critique the
techniques observed.  This course has been presented to line officers, police
investigators from across the United States as well as Investigators from around the
world.  Students that have taken this course have reported excellent results using these
techniques and a significant improvement in their interview and interrogation skills.  It is
the goal of this course to train the student to conduct more effective and productive
interviews and interrogations.  Interviews that get more quality information and
interrogations that end in confessions.
