Effectively conducting interviews & interrogations is a crucial part of criminal investigations, and assessing the information from such encounters for reliability is critical to successful outcomes. Although essential to setting the foundation and direction of criminal investigations, officers are rarely trained to effectively interview victims and witnesses, focusing most of their training on suspect interviews. However, the approach often used by law enforcement with suspects is confrontational and counter-productive, and in many instances has resulted in stalled cases, improper arrests, false confessions and even lawsuits. 
The BELIEF Interviewing model is based upon the acronym BELIEF
  • Build, Extract, Look/Listen, Identify, Expand, Follow-up
This is a very effective method to gather and assess information from victims, witnesses, suspects and informants in a professional, non-confrontational manner. This program is in alignment with our core values that everyone is innocent until proven guilty, which helps eliminate personal bias and gives people the benefit of the doubt. This helps to prevent contamination of the interview, and it maximizes verbal content from the individual. Students are taught and practice in class effective ways to gather, develop and test the information obtained during the interview for veracity. In addition to enhancing practical skills and effective questioning strategies, we address the thought process and mindset of the investigator, which is critical because that is what steers the investigative process. This solid interviewing foundation also allows for the implementation of tactical and strategic use of evidence during the interview, as well as using questioning strategies such as cognitive interviewing and investigative statement analysis, which be learned within the training.
Sponsored in part by the University of New Haven and the Orange Police Department.
