Summer Conference Event
Investigative Interview Techniques
This talk will provide an overview of investigative interviewing tools and techniques used within a forensic context. The focus here is to elicit detailed and reliable information from witnesses and suspects as this can play a central role in legal decision-making and, ultimately, the delivery of justice. For a number of psychological reasons, even cooperative witnesses do not spontaneously report all the information they know.
