Reid Interviewing & Interrogation techniques
I'm in an OSHA Whistleblower training class in Florida this week and one of the presenters mentioned Reid. He had an DOD background and experience as an investigator.
1. Have you attended a Reid Interviewing & Interrogation class?
2. Would you recommend the 3 day class & the 1 day advanced class?

Yes to both. I enjoyed Reid and used it quite a bit. It's pretty alien and the techniques seem odd but they do work if you use them and have patience. It also takes some practice.*************************"It wouldn't take much for me to up and run...to another life somewhere in the sun."*************************"There's something inherently wrong with having to put on a bullet-proof vest and a gun to go to work."-(An old friend)

A couple of guys on my shift went to it, and told me it really isn't beneficial.
They're reasoning, is because we work at night, and primarily deal with people intoxicated on drugs and alcohol, thus, the Reid techniques aren't effective with them.
But, again, I didn't take the class. That's what they told me.No one has greater love than this, to lay down ones life for ones friends - John 15:13

If you couple Reid with experience, you will serve yourself very well indeed.

I went to Northeast counter drug version, which was free and extremely good. They use a few of the Reid stuff. I know a few guys that went to Reid and they liked it.

Went to several I&I schools while in CID, the Reid technique was 1 of the good ones. I used it a lot and still do even on the streets.Blessed are the the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. MATT 5:10

I've been throught both classes and there is good stuff to be learned. Like was said it take practice, experience and a good poker face. I have never done a full blown REID on someone , interview, interrogation like they teach, but have used bits & pieces of both in a modified interrogation may times. Most really experienced bad guys don't fall for the BS anyway. For a street cop, who just holds it down for some CID unit, it may not be that useful, but if you do further follow-up investigations, it can be handy. Just another tool for your tool box.John

Reid has good points, as do many of the others. One thing I don't like about the Reid Technique is that it is very confrontational, so it's not suited to every interview. I've had a brief version of it.Voting against incumbents until we get a Congress that does its job.

It was very valuable for me as an investigtor, and later as a polygraph examiner. It increased my clearing cases by confessions quite a bit. Like many techniques, it does not stand alone as the "one magic button" to succes, it is more like having a bigger wrench in your toolbox.
Reid is of value to the uniformed officer, for it teaches you to read the body language that may be a warning of something about to happen.
I highly recommend Reid for the investigator and an officer safety tool for the uniformed officer. It is all about non-verbal behavior being the strongest indicator of involvement in doing 'that bad thing'.Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same.-- Anonymous

Reid isn't a "trick" or a magic technique.
An experienced officer and investigator will intuit a lot of the stuff Reid teaches because of their experience.
Taking the 3 day Reid course will shorten that learning curve for you.
I learned a lot in that 3 day course and have used it successfully, I can definitely recommend that course.Pleasing nobody, one person at a time.

Thank you all for the feedback. I deal with difficult people in the state agency I work for (its not a small town in Wisconsin). There's a Reid class coming to AK in March 2012 that I'm going to convince my boss to send us to.

I have attended Reid Basic and Advanced. Reid is considered the standard for interrogations. I recommend the course. If you are not a good interrogator it should tell you why you aren't. If you are a good interrogator, it will define what you are doing right and what you are doing wrong.
