Overview

The PEACE model of interviewing, also known as Investigative Interviewing, is a model to be used when interviewing suspects and witnesses. However, it should also be used for all types of interviews such as those conducted within disciplinary investigations.  The model was designed by top psychologists to enable the interview to maximise the potential of obtaining information from the interviewee.  It is universally used throughout the world and is the standard model for the Police and enforcement officers within Central and Local Government.

This course will concentrate on this proven model and will enable attendees to have the knowledge and confidence to conduct professional information gathering interviews.

This course will enable you to

  • Recognise each phase of the PEACE model for interviewing and evaluate how each phase is dependent on the other phases.
  • Be able to plan and prepare any type of interview to maximise the potential for information and evidence gathering.
  • Assess any pre-interview disclosure requirements for the interviewee or third party such as a Legal Representative.
  • Identify how to break an interview into topic areas and develop the topics within the model whether interviewing alone or in pairs.
  • Develop questioning strategies for the different types of answers given such as lies, no comment or admissions from suspects.
  • Apply techniques when presenting evidence and exhibits to suspects to maximise their impact on the evidential process.
  • Following the conclusion, be able to evaluate your interviews.
