A Guide to Interviewing Sex Crime Victims and Interviewing Sexually Motivated Offenders, all into one easy-to-read guide.
Part 1: This book takes you through some simple steps for interviewing the littlest victims to teenagers, and then on to adults and senior citizens.
Part 2: Taking the mystery out of interviewing sex offenders is what this part of the book is designed to do.


Is this book full of complex definitions and psychological terms?  
No. This book is designed to help you catch sex offenders, not cure them. With this in mind, this book describes how easy it is to use their behavioragainst them during interview.

Do I have to remember a long list of interviewing themes to successfully 
No. The five trademarks of the suspect interview can be used in a multitude of offender interviews.

Are all child molesters pedophiles? 
No. There are many “types” of offenders that will molest children. Pedophiles are perhaps the fewest in number.

Why do I have to interview sex offenders differently than other criminals? 
The motivation for sex offenses is different than other crimes. This makes sex offenders the most fascinating criminal law enforcement deals with. Their crimes have nothing to do with money or anger towards a specific person, meaning we need added strategies to interview them.
