The Phases of the Interview Process
An interview process has three interdependent phases. A successful interview takes into account the perspectives of all those involved: the interviewer, victims, witnesses, and suspects.
An investigator must prepare for every interview, whether it is executed in the field or in the controlled confines of headquarters, and adhere to the process of interviewing.
In this assignment, you will act as a potential interviewer and formulate a plan for an interview. By doing so, you will get a firsthand experience of the phases of the interview process and the preparation for each phase.
Using the Argosy University online library resources, prepare a 6- to 9-slide Microsoft PowerPoint presentation with notes, highlighting the following aspects:
- Interview preparation
- The Interview process: Phase 1
- The Interview process: Phase 2
- The Interview process: Phase 3
- Questioning strategies and approaches
By Monday, January 19, 2015, submit your final presentation.
