Charming Chester – Selling Jail to Child Sex Offenders


This presentation will illustrate some of the shortcomings of traditional interview and interrogation training. Drawing upon sales and behavioral modification techniques utilized by corporate America, we will illustrate methods that the interrogator can utilize to increase the amount of information elicited in an investigative interview.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss techniques that an interviewer can utilize in order to obtain information from social media and outside sources to become the “mythical” person with whom the examinee wants to interact.

  2. Understand impression management techniques that effect the way we “imprint” upon the subject. Explore methods to “prime” this initial interaction in order to improve your first impression.

  3. Illustrate how to decrease levels of anxiety in an interview setting that interfere with the ability to exchange information.

  4. Discuss how to effectively develop and leverage rapport in an interview setting.  Case studies will focus on real world examples of how rapport is established, maintained, and leveraged to obtain a positive outcome.

  5. Explore elicitation techniques that will increase the amount of truthful information provided during child exploitation investigations.

  6. Examine case studies involving child pornography and sexual assault. These cases serve as the subject of an open forum in which the group discusses the advantages and disadvantages of elicitation approaches utilized by the interviewers.

OSINT for ICAC - This comprehensive one-day hands-on lab will go over many aspects of open-source intelligence gathering and give specific examples of how these can be relevant to Internet Crimes Against Children Investigations. Working in ICAC, it is critical to know how to search for, locate, save, and replicate online information relating to an investigation. Topics will include resources for general online research (including phone number, address, and email lookups), using Google Boolean operators to construct specific online searches over multiple keywords and search points, and searching for and saving data from various social media platforms. Because online data can quickly appear and vanish, you need to continuously document your findings and this class will show you the latest tools, tips, and techniques that will help keep your investigation moving forward. Additionally, this class can also show how to creatively take a forensic report and build linkages to other open source intelligence gathering – for example, finding an Instagram ID in a Cellebrite report and using that to backwards connect to the full Instagram profile and related information.
