Abstract:

Police interviewing is a critical part of the justice process, and more
attention is now being paid to training in interview techniques. This new
study from Australia uses tools drawn from interactional sociolinguistics
and Conversation Analysis for a detailed investigation of some police
questioning of adult suspects, and work undertaken in the training of
police in interviewing children - in which quite different approaches seem
to be adopted. The study powerfully illustrates the conflicts and
contradictions that threaten to undermine the success of criminal
proceedings and presents a fresh perspective on the balance between civil
liberties and police power. Critical Discourse analytic techniques are used
in interpreting the outcome. Both productive and counterproductive police
interview strategies are exposed and the implications for interview
training are explored.
