The Art of Investigative Interviewing, Third Edition can be used by anyone who is involved in investigative interviewing. It is a perfect combination of real, practical, and effective techniques, procedures, and actual cases. Learn key elements of investigative interviewing, such as human psychology, proper interview preparation, tactical concepts, controlling the interview environment, and evaluating the evidence obtained from the interview. Inge Sebyan Black updated the well-respected work of Charles L. Yeschke to provide everything an interviewer needs to kw in order to conduct successful interviews professionally, with integrity, and within the law. This book covers the myriad factors of an interview - including issues of evidence, rapport, deception, authority, and setting - clearly and effectively. It also includes a chapter on personnel issues and internal theft controls.
