Course Length: 1Day (8 Hours)
Law enforcement officers
are coming into contact with more juveniles each year - professionally.
These young persons are offenders, victims, witnesses and suspects.
The approach officers use when interviewing young persons affects
the outcome of criminal cases, as well as the police-citizen relations
with the community at large. This interactive workshop focuses
on legal issues surrounding the interviewing of juveniles, the
development of rapport between the adult officer and the juvenile
subject, and the dynamics of juvenile interviewing. Participants
identify their strengths and weaknesses in juvenile interviewing
by formulating, posing, and discussing appropriate interview questions.
