We interview witnesses. A large part of any investigator’s or detective’s job involves interviewing people. This often takes place in a person’s home, workplace or at a police station. Interviews are frequently recorded and can result in a written statement signed and dated by the interviewee. Private investigators don’t interrogate people. Their aim is to obtain the facts of the case in a respectful and non-oppressive fashion. Witness interviews are an important form of evidence in both civil and criminal proceedings.
