Investigative Interviewing Masterclass

Add powerful interview skills to your regulatory toolbox

Develop the critical skills to conduct interviews

Investigative interviewing is a very useful tool in the regulator’s toolbox and can gather large amounts of admissible evidence in a short space of time. However, it is often not used due to the fear of “getting it wrong” or misapplied.

This masterclass will demystify the investigative interviewing process, introduce the science backed PEACE model of interviewing, and provide participants with practical tools that can be applied in their specific workplace. The masterclass will include opportunities for participants to practise the concepts discussed and powerful questioning techniques designed to elicit the flow of information from both witnesses and suspects.

What will you takeaway?

How the PEACE model of interviewing can be applied to interviewing both witnesses and suspects

Understanding of how human memory works and how easy it can be influenced by poorly structured questions

How to use the “details funnel” to maximise quality information from your interviews

The big differences between interrogation and interviewing

How to design strategies to deal with untruthful answers
