Investigators must obtain information to investigate.  Investigative information is gleaned from a variety of sources, documents, computers, cell phones, trace evidence, and people.   As of today, and for the foreseeable future, it is people who commit violations, witness violations, and have information concerning violations you are investigating, whether it is a crime of a violation of company policy.  It is important to understand that not everybody you talk to is a suspect.  When preparing a Case Plan, careful attention must be given to the Interview Strategy, including who to interview and in what order the interviews should take place.  It is equally important to understand why certain individual need to be interviewed and what questions need to be asked to achieve your interview objective. In addition, the interview method (i.e. recorded, formal, informal,) and the location of the interviews must be determined.

Why Should You Attend

Interviewing is not a peripheral task that is undertaken in the wake of conducting an investigation. Interviewing is a critical component of an investigation. The successful conclusion of the matter you are investigating often rests with the quality of your interviews. Without a doubt the best investigators are the ones with the best interview skills, which includes preparing and developing a well thought out Interview Strategy.
This interview training for employers will provide with the tools to develop an Interview Strategy as part of a Case Plan.  The webinar will discuss the various categories of interviewees that investigators will need to talk to in typical investigations. Furthermore, the webinar will discuss the importance of understanding why an interviewee needs to be interviewed and how to develop a pertinent topic/questions list tailored to each interviewee to assist in reaching the interview objective. In addition, the webinar will discuss interview best practices as it relates to room setting, note taking, recording, and the number of interviewers.
Also, the webinar will provide insight as to what motivates an interviewee to be less than candid and what motivates an interviewee to be truthful. (It’s not only suspects who will lie and be deceptive.)
