This evaluation focuses on the developing interviewing skills of 103 Swedish police officers who participated in six different courses during the years 2007-2010 built around the NICHD Protocol (Lamb et al., 2008) and the PEACE model (Milne & Bull, 1999). The teaching was interdiciplinary, spanning development psychology, investigative interviewing and law. Most lectures emphasised the attainment of best possible interveiw pracitices. After training, the police officers reduced their use of option-posing questions by two thirds and tripled their use of invitations.
