The Reid Technique of Advanced Interrogation

The one-day Advanced Course on the Reid Technique of Interviewing and Interrogation® Program is designed to build on the information learned at the basic course program. Particular emphasis is placed on how to elicit information from the suspect during the interview stage that will serve as the basis for developing an individualized interrogational approach, based on the suspect’s profile and characteristics.

Without exception, past participants have commented on the value of the Advanced program in giving them a better understanding of the interrogation process, and in allowing them to enhance their skill level by learning new techniques and tactics.
