Interview and Interrogation: Patrol to Investigations


This unique course offers Patrol Officers and new Investigators insight into what a person is saying and, most importantly, what they are not saying. Studies have found that while the majority of people do not lie, they instead choose to omit information. In doing so, people display involuntary signs of nonverbal body language; they offer “Evasive Verbal Responses” to direct bipolar questioning, and their written statements often identify areas that are sensitive to them. While the type of crime is inconsequential, what is essential is that the person giving the information is affected by the same passions of guilt, stress, and psychological reasoning relating to their particular crime.

Day one of the course will cover the following topics:

  • Interviews vs. interrogations
  • Questioning Tips
  • Commonly Used Deceptive Phrases
  • Multiple Interviewers
  • Current Case Law
  • Body Language
  • Statement Analysis

  • Victim/Witness/Suspect Types 
  • Rapport Building 
  • Separated Subjects
  • Miranda Rights/Waiver
