Gaining the upper hand on effective interviewing

Interviewing of targets, suspects, neighbors, by-standers, business owners and interrogating targets and “hot” suspects is both an art and a science. In this webinar “Luizzo and Gaspar” will shine a super bright lantern on how seasoned investigative sleuths use interview techniques, kinetics, room configuration, deceptive behavior signals, shorthand, interpreters and social media harvesting to get the facts and only the facts.

In this session attendees will learn:

  • Interview and interrogation definitions
  • Shorthand and notetaking tips
  • Deceptive behavior traits
  • Due diligence requirements
  • Pre interview / interrogation checklist preparation
  • Interpreter utilization
  • Social media harvesting
  • Locating interview targets
  • Questioning strategies
  • Forensics role in the investigative process
