Do you need to conduct an Investigative Interview?

Investigative interviews are carried out in many different circumstances. Perhaps you work for a Local Authority and handle investigations as part of your role. You may regularly deal with misconduct allegations or disciplinary inquiries.

You could be involved in private investigations relating to insurance or personal injury cases. Whilst there are many situations when you must conduct an investigation, they have one aspect in common, you must interview people to establish the facts. It’s not easy and Investigative Interview Skills Training is essential.

You must do a thorough job capable of withstanding rigorous scrutiny. You will potentially be interviewing people who are uncomfortable about providing statements. They may not readily recall the events you need to discuss. Interviewers must make sure they are consistent with everyone and accurately record what they say.

The cost of getting it wrong at an investigative interview can be significant. It can have major repercussions for the investigation outcome. And that can have a big impact on your business or organisation. This means that Sancus Investigative Interview Training can be a cost effective way to safeguard your people and your organisation.
