Dave Thompson, CFI, VP of Operations, Wicklander-Zulawski & Associates
The Netflix true-crime documentary series “Making a Murderer” highlighted the case of Brendan Dassey and the interrogation that led to a highly controversial “confession” and guilty verdict resulting in Dassey’s incarceration.
Worldwide leaders in non-confrontational interviewing techniques, Wicklander-Zulawski & Associates (WZ), took a stand by highlighting the issues and errors made in these interrogations leading to coerced confessions – and have continued to use this case as an example in their training programs.
Dave Thompson, CFI, discusses the impact “Making a Murderer” has had on the interrogation community and how it’s helped push the evolution of this essential skill for practitioners ranging from law enforcement to loss prevention.
