Because of our experience in the field of interviewing and interrogation our staff are highly respected by courts and investigative agencies alike. On a regular basis we are asked to review material for expert consultation. This includes review of audio or video taped interviews and or interrogations.
evaluating electronically recorded interviews or interrogations, we can often
provide an expert opinion to an agency concerning:
Is the suspect withholding relevant information or telling the truth?
What interrogation approach would be most productive for this particular
suspect? How could an interview
have been conducted differently to develop more meaningful information?
What additional tactics or strategies could have been used during an
interrogation to persuade the suspect to tell the truth?
A another common review
is that of interrogation techniques or a confession. During a suppression
hearing, various aspects of the voluntary nature or trustworthiness of a
confession require an expert to educate the court on what is considered proper
or improper. While we are not
qualified to offer legal opinions, we can enlighten a judge on why certain
tactics and contemporary interrogation techniques are necessary and why they
would not cause an innocent person to confess. On the other hand, about 50% of
our confession consultations are for the defense -- Not every interrogation is
properly conducted. In those situations we may testify as to the possible
effects of duress, coercion or other factors that may have led to an involuntary
or false confession.
As part of our consulting services our staff is available to review your current pre-employment selection process and screening interview content. We will work with your organization to strengthen the structure and quality of the interview and application process, which will improve your organizationís ability to identify high-risk applicants before they become problem employees.
Numerous studies have
reported that people are more candid and open when responding to questions asked
on a computer monitor than by a human interviewer.
This is the underlying concept of the Computer Employment Application.
This innovative software application actually conducts a pre-employment
interview of a job applicant. The
applicant responds to questions about his employment history, drug use, general
honesty and criminal activity. The interactive program selects follow-up
questions to ask based on the applicant's initial response to key inquires. The
computer generates a report that accurately reflects the applicant's past
behaviors within these relevant areas.
The report and the applicantís candid responses can then be reviewed in more detail during an actual face-to-face meeting. More time can be spent discussing the application and related information rather than transcribing the applicantís initial responses. The average length of the interview is 30 minutes and results are immediate. This software has ideal application for screening large numbers candidates.
