Criminal Interviews for Road Patrol

Criminal Interviews for Road Patrol is a 1-day course that focuses on interview and interrogation techniques designed specifically for the road patrol officer or deputy. Real interview footage, from our instructors, will be shown to reinforce what we teach. After being promoted back to patrol, Jon Rappa made it his mission to test which interview techniques transfer from detectives to the patrol side and how to successfully improve on the interviews conducted by patrol officers. Patrol officers should not be limited in something they do every single day. TAKE YOUR INTERVIEW SKILLS TO THE NEXT LEVEL!
