I found “The Reid Technique for Patrol Officers.” to be exceptionally well done. This course will no doubt be a welcome, addition to the patrol officer’s tool-box. I wholeheartedly recommend this course. I was introduced to the Reid Technique of Interview and Interrogation 20 years ago, and I still utilize many of the techniques taught during that course in present day. This new course will undoubtedly aid the patrol officer in his/her duties for many years to come.

Throughout my career as a police officer, investigator and now professor, I have utilized the Reid Technique to successfully learn the truth from deceptive people. The Reid Technique for Patrol Officers training module is an excellent first step in learning more about how to properly interview and interrogate suspects. Utilizing the information in the video will increase your ability to spot deception and learn the truth.

The video and the content of the Reid Technique for Patrol Officers is great introduction to the Reid Technique and a good refresher for our uniform patrol officers and detectives in the field. Realizing our current state of emergency, I think distance learning training tools like this will be the new normal in our training toolbox.
