The main objective of a interrogation is to make the suspect admit to a crime or speak the truth. But the questioning process can be quite complex and might lead the suspect astray from confessing. Louis Sense, Chief Polygraph Examiner and Vice President of John E. Reid and Associates, Inc, recommends these 5 tactics to a successful interrogation.
1. Case facts and motive
2. The suspect’s statements during the interview
3. Common sense
4. Prior similar case experiences
5. Training and education
