Investigative Interviewing of Suspects

(Tier 2) CPD Online Learning Day


6 May 2021


Day runs from 9.30am - 4.30pm on Teams


Join us for our exclusive one-day CPD event on the Investigative Interviewing of Suspects. The day is aimed at all investigators who are required to conduct PEACE interviews in the course of their work.


It is ideal if you want to get a basic ground in suspect interviews or if you want to brush up on your existing skills and

stay current in this ever-changing area of investigative practice.


It will also provide you with an important forum for debate and to network with colleagues to share current issues

and best practice.


It will be led by Martin Vaughan, an international investigative interviewing trainer, lecturer and former ACPO

National Investigative Interview Advisor and investigator with Gwent Police, where he worked for over 30 years

before retiring to run his own investigative interviewing training and consultancy.

Martin has worked as an interview advisor on numerous major investigations in Wales and across the UK.  He is also

due to complete his PHD in Forensic Interviewing this year after undertaking a detailed study of work in the area of

“Managing Interviews with Vulnerable Suspects in High Stake Investigations”.


Martin has worked with The Investigator over the past 12 years and has delivered some of the most informative and

engaging workshops and we are proud to welcome him back for this exclusive learning day.



Suspect interviews are a vital part of the investigation process and they must be carefully planned and executed by

suitably trained investigative interviewers. The interviewer must possess the ability to analyse accurately the

information gained from all areas of an investigation in order to conduct an ethical and legally acceptable interview.


The day is designed to include the following specific areas:

- Define an interview and its purpose                                         - What is PEACE?

- Prepare for a suspect interview                                                - Maintain the welfare and security of the those present

- Effective communication skills                                                  - Memory processes

- Commence the interview                                                          - Conduct the interview

- Complete relevant documentation                                           - Closure of interview process

- Evaluate the interview                                                               - Evaluate own performance
