In recent decades, court cases in several countries have revealed some police interviewing of suspects to be grossly incompetent. However, few countries seem to have sought to improve this crucial aspect of policing, which is of great importance to society. However, in England and Wales in the last 20 years, the police service and the government have made pioneering attempts at improvement, these attempts largely being based on work by psychologists. This chapter provides an overview of these developments.
