Models of investigative interviewing




Think there are only two models of interviewing suspects? Think again.

Most discussions of models for the questioning of suspects imply that there are only two models: The US-based Reid Approach (e.g., Inbau et al., 2013), and the UK-Based PEACE model (e.g., Milne & Bull, 1999). However, there are in fact many more models. Some of the following are adaptations of the Reid or PEACE models, whilst some represent very different approaches. In the coming weeks each of these models will be profiled in depth in this Blog series.

  • ProGREAI (Processus Général de Recueil des Entretiens, Auditions et Interrogatoires) (Demarchi & Delhalle, 2015).

Germany

  • The structured interview (Berresheim & Capellmann, 2013).
