Interview and Interrogation Law (Online)

Interviews and interrogations often play important roles in criminal investigations. The collection of relevant information, development or elimination of suspects and many other pieces of the puzzle can be obtained through effective interview and interrogation techniques. In order for the information obtained to be admissible in court, it must be legally obtained. This course will provide a comprehensive legal review of the case law and statutes governing interviews and interrogations.

This is a self-paced, 16-hour, online course with no "face-to-face" meetings.  The course was developed and is facilitated by Law Enforcement Legal Advisor, Andrew Tallmer.  Students will have 60 days to complete all required assignments and testing.

Check the "Law Enforcement Course Schedule" below for available course dates.
