Question 1
Interviews and Interrogations
The interviewing process is the first and probably the lowest phase of an interaction

suspicions are certified by substantive evidence that supports the test of basing solid grounds
for belief, the investigator must proceed to talk to the suspect or witness without offering
cautions. Investigators also need to be prepared for the opportunity to collect the poser's
version of occurrences, including possibly false statements that may afford a chance for later
investigations and demonstrate possible fabrications. Kelly, Dawson, and Hartwig (2019)

and gain "reasonable grounds to suspect," and achieve the obligation of stopping further
interviewing once the suspect is confirmed as culpable.
