In this seminar, the presenter, Professor Georgina Heydon, will explain the most common approaches used by police to interview suspects and witnesses, and why some approaches can create difficulties for interpreters to work effectively. Participants will be introduced to the PEACE training method for police and the concepts of cognitive interviewing.  We will examine turn-taking structures in police interviews and how interpreters can manage the interaction without compromising the integrity of the evidence, or the accuracy of the rendition.
