Investigative Interviewing

The ISN Investigative Interview System© uses a specialized cognitive interviewing technique to gather information and determine truthfulness.  The ISN Interviewing System was developed in-house and draws on the knowledge and experience of ISN’s management team; former police investigators with decades of interviewing experience. In collaboration with experts in the fields of criminology and human behaviour, the course was developed by ISN in accordance with Canadian criminal and civil law as well as corporate best practices. The ISN Investigative Interview System uses proven, effective methods to obtain the truth in a fair and ethical manner. Not to be confused with interrogation, this is a rapport-based interviewing system which is effective.
