Successful law enforcement requires prosecutable evidence and effective counterterrorism needs actionable intelligence. The interrogation technique provides both but it also raises significant ethical and legal issues. How far does a civilized society based on the rule of law go in seeking accurate information? During this presentation you will learn and practice effective techniques adhering to the highest ethical standards.

Don is a Mensa life member, happily retired from the U.S. Marine Corps and the Federal Bureau of Investigation where he respectively commanded a Counterintelligence Team and managed the  FBI National Academy’s Interview & Interrogation Program. For ten years he was an  Adjunct Faculty member of the University of Virginia where he was awarded the prestigious Jefferson Award for research excellence and is currently an Adjunct Professor of Psychology at Nova Southeastern University, Fort Lauderdale, FL where he teaches graduate level courses in applied criminal psychology.
