Due to changes in UK legislation and recording technology some 30 years ago police interviews could be assessed against robust criteria like never before.  This led to a review in 1992 of police interviews and a fundamental change in interview training in the UK:  The PEACE model.  The model is simple, has stood the test of time and has been exported around the world.  It forms the logical spine of an investigative interview.  In this module we will look at this model and practice the techniques.

P PLANNING Examine what planning and preparation need or could take place prior to an interview

E ENGAGE Look at methods which assist in building rapport with the suspect or witness

A ACCOUNT Obtaining accounts in a logical and effective structure whilst managing the conversation including clarification

C CLOSURE Closing the interview down 

E EVALUATE Reviewing your product and next steps
