9780398074951: Interrogation: Achieving Confessions Using Permissible Persuasion

This book explores practical and legal tactics of interrogation by which to seek the truth and in particular confessions or admissions. Its goal is to provide the investigator with the skills to persuade the culpable to confess or reveal information that may be the equivalent of a full confession. The initial chapter provides the reader with a roadmap to interrogation and outlines the book's organization followed by a discussion of the philosophical and legal underpinnings of interrogation. Chapter 3 reflects elements of the Polyphasic Flowchart which are interrelated between interviewing and interrogation, while the following chapter deals with difficult interviewees and especially explores working with psychopaths. Chapter 5 considers interview question formulation, and in Chapter 6 the self-fulfilling prophesy of interrogation along with its support elements of patience, active listening, and intuition is explored. In the following chapter aspects of detection of deception and the role of the polygraphist is explored. In Chapter 8 the smooth transition from interview to interrogation is pondered, while Chapter 9 reviews the basic considerations and techniques that can be applied to any situation. Face-to-face interrogation tactics that encourage culpable subjects to confess is contemplated in Chapter 10. Chapter 11 scrutinizes actual, real-world confessions, including false confessions. The penultimate chapter deals with the difficult sexually related offenses and provides many actual case studies. And, in the final chapter an in-depth case study of a bank theft investigation is provided and illustrates the use of the Polyphasic Flowchart. The reader will find that this unique book functions as a very practical guide to the successful development of effective police interrogation skills and techniques.
