Fact: Your department is going to be involved in a critical incident. Your department is going to be involved in a critical incident! Officers and investigators engaged in the situation must understand the totality of the investigative process through the ensuing criminal investigation, the internal departmental reviews and often a civil lawsuit.

Fact: Effective investigations into officers’ actions & decisions are more crucial than ever. Investigators get very little training on effectively eliciting officers’ true recall and perceptions of a force event from an investigative and analytical stance. This expertly designed program identifies the complex combination of police performance dynamics, investigative limitations, and liability issues that can broadly impact the officer, the department and the municipality.

C.I.R. has specifically developed these comprehensive courses, outlining concepts and theories in the investigations and analyses of controversial use-of-force incidents, to provide officers and departments with the tools to develop investigative strategies that effectively and objectively collect factual data. These courses focus on mastering the Cognitive Interview process, identifying behavioral and perceptual anomalies, understanding human performance limitations, dissecting the technological complexities of video evidence that can have a major impact on the accuracy of understanding an encounter, interview protocols, and appropriately integrating video evidence into all areas of the investigatory process, including the gathering of officer statements.
