Interviews represent the most basic and human element of any investigation. Diligent interviewers constantly search for a complete and truthful telling of events. Whether you are a law enforcement officer, an investigative reporter, or simply a business professional negotiating a work dispute, investigative interviewing skills help you to efficiently and reliably determine the events and motives at hand. This masterclass seeks to highlight the best practices of interviewing techniques and to provide you with a variety of considerations and tools for your next interview.

Whether you are interviewing the primary subject of an investigation, a victim, or a peripheral witness, it is crucial that the interview is conducted in a thorough and professional manner. Engaging in anything less may expose the investigation to the risk its findings and conclusions are found less than credible or are ultimately excluded as evidence. In a successful interview, the process is as important as the results.

The Non-Confrontational approach encouraged the suspect to make a rational rather than an emotional decision to confess. In addition, it can uncover a pattern of criminal behavior instead of that single incident being investigated. A successful non-confrontational approach allows a collaborative decision-making led by the suspect using the interrogator as a trusted advisor because of the rapport and trust that was build in the process, thus giving more opportunities for the investigator to succeed.
