Meet Daren Jay,
Your Investigative Interviewing Mentor!

Thanks for checking in on this FREE course introducing you to the PEACE model of Investigative Interviewing. PEACE is a simple framework within which investigators can plan, conduct and evaluate investigative interviews in ANY investigative context.

Having spent over twenty five years training law enforcement officers how to investigate and interview witnesses, complainants, and suspects, I’ve seen how important a structured approach to planning and conducting investigative interviews can be.

Without a structured approach, lines of inquiry get missed, evidence is overlooked, and evidence, intelligence and information can be lost.

The simplicity of the PEACE model as an investigative interviewing tool has stood the test of time and the framework offered by the PEACE model continues to be used by law enforcement and other investigators around the world to enhance investigative outcomes at interviews with witnesses, complainants, and suspects in various investigative contexts.

This course will give you the information you need to fully understand what the PEACE model is, where it came from, and how it can be used to plan, conduct and evaluate your next investigative interview. All I need is 33-minutes of your time!

I hope this FREE training is of use to you! Please let me know if you found it useful!
