C.R.I.M.E.  1-2-3

Criminal Related Interviewing Made Easy

The most effective “One Day” interviewing and interrogation seminar created.


This dynamic 8 hr. course is specifically designed to prepare all detectives, investigators, agents, supervisors, gang officers and uniformed patrol officers to become effective interviewers and be consistently successful in obtaining difficult confessions.  From new officers to experienced detectives, you will learn to easily separate the interview and interrogation process into three easy steps.  Each step provides simple and straightforward “how-to’s” that will allow you to get a confession in any venue or circumstance.

In one intense, interactive training day, C.R.I.M.E. 1-2-3’s expert, approachable instructors will provide each attendee with easy-to-understand tools that have been used and perfected on hard-core criminals for nearly two decades.  This will be the most exciting and realistic interview class you have ever attended.

No more time-consuming and expensive courses that teach complex interrogation “tactics” that have more steps than you can remember during a stressful interview.  Build self-confidence, learn what to do in a variety of circumstances and become a truly great interviewer. 

C.R.I.M.E 1-2-3 is here. So get in, get it and get out.


Blocks of instruction will include:

Real interviewer preparation, Time management, Know your suspect, Set the stage for success, Proper introductions and face time, Recognize and Utilize your strong points, Physical and verbal considerations, Homicide preparation and legal aspects, Choosing “your” interview technique, Closing the confession, Morals and the media.
