More and more frequently the quality and accuracy of investigative interviews are receiving greater scrutiny in the courts – both criminal and civil. In the meantime, training in ethical and effective interviewing skillsets are falling further and further behind. In some cases the skillsets being taught and used have changed little in more than 6 decades.
Supreme Court Justice Wm. Brennan noted:
“…a system of criminal law enforcement which comes to depend on the `confession' will, in the long run, be less reliable and more subject to abuses…”
Renowned consumer advocate Ralph Nader noted that interviewing and interrogation tactics used by loss prevention personnel constitutes what he calls “…a corporate abuse.”
