Interviewing and Interrogation -“Maximizing the Opportunity” 


Cost: $255.00

The Saint Paul Police Professional Development Institute (PDI) is co-sponsoring with Neil Nelson and Associates a 2-day course INTERVIEWING AND INTERROGATION “MAXIMIZING THE OPPORTUNITY”

Part 1: Directing the taped interrogations: which introduces strategies for effective use of tape recording during interviews and interrogations developed in response to the State of Minnesota Supreme Court’s 1994 Scales ruling that mandates taping of all custodial interviews. 

Part 2: Interview and interrogation using the RIP Technique: introduces a ground breaking interview and interrogation technique combining the three elements of rapport, investment, and partnership.  Discusses what motivates a suspect to confess and why existing techniques don’t work with taped interviews. 

Neil Nelson is a retired commander from the Saint Paul Police Department who is recognized nationally for his interview and interrogation skills. This seminar is designed for sworn law enforcement personnel who want to become more confident in their interview and interrogation skills.
