- Training in the Forensic Interviewing-method establishes skills to ensure that investigative interviews are conducted effectively and in a professional manner.
- We provide the foundation to sound investigative interviewing practices through well researched knowledge and skills obtained in the Southern African environment. The training developed over the last 20 years has been developed for this region of the world with it’s unique challenges.
- Over the last 20 years major developments in South Africa took place relating to investigative interviewing techniques. The Constitution of the Republic of South Africa that came into being in 1996 provides the foundation to investigations and interviewing methods that are in line with the international norm of witness orientated interviewing.
- Electronic Communications and Transactions Act, 2002 (Act No.25 of 2002) – provides the investigative interviewer with the unique opportunity to make an audio recording of an investigative interview without the consent of the interviewee. The recording can be used to protect both interviewee and interviewer.
- Training is based on the rights of the individual as described in the South African Constitution. These basic parameters are very useful for the investigator to ensure his/her conduct cannot be deemed illegal and thus rendering all investigative and interviewing efforts as illegal and inadmissible.
