Active Officers Helping Active Officers Find the Maximum Tactical Advantage Using
Evidence-Based Interviewing and Interrogation
The CTK Group specializes in criminal interview and interrogation training for law enforcement, fire investigators, and correctional personnel. Always have, always will. We do not provide training for loss prevention, the insurance industry, or defense attorneys. This training focuses on legally sound, research-based techniques for eliciting information from criminal defendants. We collaborate with progressive law enforcement agencies who are interested in changing the stagnant culture of interview and interrogation.
