About the Product

Interviewing and Interrogation explores and critically examines the many methods and techniques associated with interviewing concepts and practices from a Canadian perspective. The Canadian legal context is central to this discussion and, as such, references are made to the Criminal Code, Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Youth Criminal Justice Act, and Canada Evidence Act. Major Supreme Court decisions are examined throughout the text to provide authenticity and context to the examples being presented. The author believes that the ability for one to master a skill requires practice, so a number of exercises are included throughout to help reinforce what is being presented. Practical and applied, this text will provide students with a set of tools to use as they continue to refine and apply their mastery of investigative interviewing skills.
