C.R.I.M.E. 1-2-3: Crime-Related Interviewing Made Easy

Event Info
Monday, February 22, 2021 - 8:00am to 4:00pm

This course is designed to prepare detectives, uniformed patrol, and task force members to become more effective interviewers and consistently successful in getting difficult confessions.  Participants will learn how to separate the interview and interrogation process into three easy steps.  Each crucial step provides simple and straight forward techniques that are fast and effective in any venue or circumstance.  Though developed with the patrol officer in mind, this training will assist personnel in other units gain critical information and act on that information in a unified fashion.  In one day, attendees will learn easy-to-understand methods that have been used and perfected on hard-core criminals for over twenty years.  Students will build self-confidence, learn what works, and become more effective interviewers as they quickly return to the street.

The course will be conducted by Domenic Cappelluti, a veteran street cop and detective with the Waukegan Police Department and former Group Supervisor of the Lake County Major Crime Task Force.  With over 20 years on the job, Domenic has specialized in high profile violent street crimes, including homicides, murder for hire cases, and officer involved shootings.  He has investigated hundreds of gang and drug related operations throughout Lake County and the Chicago metropolitan area, primarily targeting Chicago-based street gangs.  Domenic is fluent in Spanish and Italian and has successfully conducted thousands of interviews, including interrogations in Spanish with Hispanic street gang members.  Domenic teaches law enforcement officers and federal agents across the United States and Mexico.
