Interview and Interrogations


This course covers procedures for interviewing witnesses and interrogating suspects. Students develop practical skills for both accusatory and non-accusatory interviews and learn how to plan out interview strategies. Usually, students practice interrogating and interviewing one another in mock interrogation rooms. Sometimes, coursework for this advanced crime investigator class includes watching videotapes of interviews and integrating the techniques into practice interview sessions. Our highly experienced instructors will provide actual case studies and interview results from real high profile closed cases.
