Police victim and witness interviewing in a Northern Canadian territory: measuring perceptions and practice
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article › peer-review
officers violated the 80/20 talking rule in 90% of the interviews and unproductive question types (e.g., closed yes/no) were used often. All interviews contained a request for a full account, most interviews contained elements of active listening, and few interruptions were observed. These findings are discussed with reference to how interviewing and cross-cultural communication
training could help police organizations who serve Indigenous populations. Future research should consider whether established international best practices for interviewing are effective in settings with Indigenous victims and witnesses.
