Subject: Interview/Interrogation Class
I want to personally thank Wiptu (Western Illinois Police Training Unit) for inviting the Phase 25 class to Jeff Baile’s class. I cannot express how much I learned and took from the class and will be putting to use all of the material taught. Not 10 hours after the class I was able to use some of the tatics used to apprehend two individuals that had just hours before committed a burglary. I stopped them on a traffic stop and was able to detect deception, and managed to get conflicting stories from the two individuals. Had it not been for that course I’m not sure it would have played out as well. One of the struggles I have found on the job is what questions to ask, and how to ask them. The course was extremely useful in that category.
Sincerely, Officer Ryan Dykstra Nauvoo/Carthage Police Department
