Session

Questioning the evidence: What works in strategic interviewing and lie detection for regulatory compliance investigations?

With John Tedeschini, Investigative Interviewing Trainer and Consultant (retired).

The regulation of gambling, like any investigative branch of government, is based to some extent on the capacity of professionals to distinguish truth from deception. Investigators are regularly required to sift through the statements provided by the targets of their inquiries to determine whether they are speaking the truth, whether their story is accurate and whether the evidence provided is reliable. 

This presentation will provide a clear overview of the most effective methods of investigative interviewing according to the latest research from around the world.  The presentation will cover the development of evidence-based training in the USA and UK, the main features of these methods, the science underlying key techniques and some tips for strategic questioning that elicits more reliable information.
