The aggressive, intimidating interrogation tactics you see on television don’t always work. Not only can they discourage the interviewee from giving you the information you need, but also they have been shown to elicit false confessions. A more conversational interviewing style, which builds trust and rapport, is the way forward. This philosophy is encapsulated in the PEACE Model of investigative interviewing, developed in the early 90s and used by law enforcement in the UK, Canada, Australia since then.

Webinar attendees will also receive a 10% discount code for upcoming two-day workshops on the PEACE Model, being held this November in Atlanta 16-17th, Boston 19-20th, San Francisco 9-10th and Dallas 12-13th – Introducing P.E.A.C.E to America

Sometimes, what a subject offers after the interview can be far more revealing than what’s contained in your interview notes.

Conducting effective investigative interviews requires a combination of great communication skills, empathy and the ability to look beyond the obvious, but most training techniques do not emphasize the closing.

Join John A. Hoda, investigator, trainer and author, for a one-hour webinar during which he will outline strategies for getting more information by harvesting the post-interview comments.

Webinar attendees will learn:

How to end an interview in a way that elicits more information
What “door-knobbing” is and why it’s considered to be a rich source of intelligence
Language that encourages interview subjects to talk more
Why staying “present” at the end of the interview can pay big dividends

Have you formed your clients’ theory of defense before you have even heard their story? Do you interrupt often with questions about the elements of the offenses?

I will teach you how to actively listen, ask clarifying then direct questions and when to bring in the police report or arrest affidavit. When you start using this method, you will be confident in gathering more facts faster and your clients will feel like they’ve been listened to.
