PEACE Model – Interviewing/Interrogating

This introductory course will break down the interview process and provide students with the basic tools necessary to conduct a PEACE-style interview, the latest interrogation model being adopted by all law enforcement agencies across Canada. Students will become more consistent and professional interviewers.

PEACE stands for:

  • Preparation and Planning
  • Engage and Explain
  • Account, Clarify and Challenge
  • Closure
  • Evaluation

The PEACE model encourages that a relaxed subject with whom the interviewer has rapport, is more likely to co-operate. It is also far more pleasant for both parties if the atmosphere isn’t charged with aggression and intimidation. The PEACE Model was developed in the early 1990s as a collaborative effort between law enforcement and psychologists in England and Wales. It was conceived as a way to stem the proliferation of false confessions that were resulting from an accusatory style of interviewing.

A non-accusatory, information-gathering approach to investigative interviewing, the PEACE model is considered to be best practice and is suitable for any type of interviewee, victim, witness or suspect.
