Q. Why didn’t you talk about good cop bad cop?
A. It seems that while good cop bad cop may be used, it isn’t officially endorsed in an interrogation, and isn’t part of official training. The presence of it in hollywood movies is way overblown, because it plays into their "high-adrenaline, highly visual" style.
Q. Is this the only interrogation technique there is?
A. No, the Reid technique is the main interrogation technique in America but it has recently come under fire for producing false confessions. See this great New Yorker article: [https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2013/12/09/the-interview-7]. Because of this, much softer interrogation methods have been looked at that don’t try to pressure the suspect. The most popular of these techniques is called the PEACE technique.

Q. I’m still interested, is there somewhere else I can go to find more information?
A. Besides the links I’ve placed which breadcrumb my research process, there is also a great NPR piece called Good Cop/Bad Cop, I think it’s similar to this video, focused on the weird dichotomy between real interrogations and how they actually are carried out.

Q. Does "lie detection" work?
A. Not really. This is the reason a lot of people have given up the Reid technique. A huge part of it hinges on the idea that a cop can "tell" when you’re lying, which is the justification for applying so much pressure during the accusation portion. In recent years this claim has fallen under a lot of scrutiny. Body language isn’t as reliable of a signal of lying as we thought. This is one of many criticisms of the Reid technique.
Q. Should I ever talk to the police?
A. Only during a traffic stop, where the cops can let you off with a warning if you cooperate and they’re feeling generous. In every other circumstance, talking to the cops can ONLY hurt you. Don’t talk to the police!!!
