This study examined current practice and research related to the investigative interview. A framework for examining the interviewing process was developed. Site visits were conducted to five government agencies and several industrial organizations were surveyed to identify current investigative interviewing practices. Existing research suggested that the investigative interview is a highly useful background investigation method. Related research from the employment interviewing, survey research, interrogation, general interviewing, and detection of deception literatures was also reviewed. Based on these finding, a scenario for conducting investigative interviews was developed. Finally, recommendations were made for research studies to evaluate the effectiveness of investigative interviewing procedures.
