The art of communication is important in every walk of life. It is a vital skill for every officer in law enforcement. This skill is one of the least practiced skills in law enforcement. The art of interviewing and interrogating is an intrinsic skill that every officer should have and practice. This skill is vital in every facet of the law enforcement career, whether it is a roadside interview, field interview, or obtaining a confession that could ultimately lead to success in a big case. It is also essential in obtaining information from a witness on a suspect.
This class is designed with the student in mind. It will consist of both classroom instruction and practical exercises, so the students can practice and fine tune their skills in the art of interviews and interrogations, in a controlled environment. Students will be able to hear and observe numerous previous interviews and interrogations. Topics of discussion will include information gathering, legal considerations, interview aspects, interrogation aspects, proxemics, non-verbal cues/body language, settings, rapport building, situational dos, and don’ts, interviewing witnesses versus suspects.
