Consensual Street Contacts

May 7 @ 8:00 am - December 31 @ 5:00 pm


Investigations can be approached in many different ways, and no one way is guaranteed to work for every case. Even if the crime is the same, sometimes consensual contacts are the best option, but are often utilized as a last resort when probable cause or reasonable suspicion have not been developed.

No doubt, consensual contacts on the street, knock and talks with a cold approach are much more difficult than other types of encounters. They require one to approach a subject much differently than what is often taught in standard interview and interrogation classes. While consensual encounters are often used in drug investigations, they can and should be utilized in all forms of criminal investigations. This webinar is designed to give you an brief overview of:

Consensual contacts, including knock and talk investigations
