Skills for Security introduces all-new Investigative Interviewing course for practising professionals

by Brian Sims

InvestigativeInterview2Internal investigations are a fact of business life. Be it from stock loss via shrinkage, missing company assets or a staff dishonesty or disciplinary issue, the ethical collection and review of information is essential.

For many organisations, this key aspect is often shrouded in mystery and can fill the investigator with fear and trepidation.

Confusion might exist over what questions can be asked. How far can the investigator probe? What are the differences between civil and potential criminal investigations?

These issues and more are skilfully addressed on Skills for Security’s new two-day Workshop programme which engages with all of the key aspects from dealing with witnesses, note taking, planning and dealing with representatives through to forming relevant questions, conducting an interview and efficient and effective decision-making.

The Investigative Interviewing programme is positioned at Level 4 and accredited by a UK university (namely The Institute of Criminal Justice Studies at the University of Portsmouth), in turn providing a gateway towards undergraduate learning.

By the end of the two-day Workshop, delegates will be able to:

*Identify the most appropriate questions in any given situation

*Demonstrate the necessary skills required to plan an interview

*Acknowledge the needs of all individuals involved in the process

*Conduct an interview

*Effectively deal with all outcomes (including liars and those that say little or nothing at all)

*Evaluate the outcome of an interview

*Make legally certain decisions

*Better protect the host business

If you’re interested in a two-day Workshop at Skills for Security’s headquarters or your own place of work, send an e-mail to: info@skillsforsecurity.org.uk or telephone 01905 744 000
