Integrated Inductive Interview System
With law enforcement tactics under intense scrutiny by the public, the courts, and the media, it is essential for both investigators and street officers to master the art of interviewing and interrogation. Advances in forensic technology have confirmed that overly coercive interviewing techniques and clever psychological tactics can produce false confessions. Our Inductive Interview System is proven to produce credible results and prevent false confessions.
Easily mastered by any officer with adequate training and practice, the Inductive Interview System creates an environment conducive to full disclosure of the truth while overcoming a subject’s attempts at deception or suppression. Our unique, “non-linear” approach is significantly different, more reliable, and much more flexible than traditional interviewing systems.
Presented in a fast-paced, dynamic format, the workshop features case studies and videos of actual interviews and confessions to emphasize the training points.
