Course Objectives
Course Overview:
From traffic stops to dispatched calls, from low priority to high, the “first contact” activities of patrol officers and first responders can have a direct impact on whether or not a case is brought to efficient and successful closure. One of the most important elements of “first contact” activity is effective “information focused” interviews of victims, witnesses, and persons of interest. Information that has been withheld, details that have been fabricated, or memory that has been contaminated can quickly and irrevocably sabotage any case.
Effective “first contact” interviews can produce the “investigative leverage” patrol officers
and first responders need to establish and maintain the line of communication with all involved parties. This “leverage” produces leads that need to be pursued, accurately identify the true role and the extent of involvement of each party involved, and significantly improve the efficient deployment of manpower and resources needed on scene.
The solution to conducting effective on-scene interviews are methods that are not complex and are easy to replicate.
The techniques should reliably recover complete and accurate information from subjects being interviewed. Finally, the techniques used should encourage victim and witness cooperation while at the same time improve the patrol officer or first responders ability to spot attempts at possible deception by any of the involved parties.

Attendees will explore:

1. The four elements of an effective information-focused interview.
2. How to recover at least 60% more information during their interviews.
3. Understand how human memory works.
4. How to avoid memory contamination and the “misinformation effect.”
5. How to spot fabricated statements by a subject.
6. Understand and recognize the two forms of deception.
7. Recognize and avoid mental and emotional manipulation by interview subjects.
8. Recognize and manage mental and emotional changes in an interview subject that
inhibits the information exchange.
9. Learn to use effective “recall enchancing” interviewing methods.
10. How to use a simple and ethical “persuasion formula” for overcoming resistance by
an interview subject.
