WZ proposes to provide a complete course in multiple interview and interrogation techniques, including the WZ Non-
Confrontational Method, Selective Interviewing Techniques, Fact-Finding Interview and the Participatory Approach.
The WZ Method complements and enhances other techniques and many of our law enforcement clients, including
Federal Government Agencies, have designated this combination as their standard approach to interview and
interrogation training. A non-confrontation approach often produces more reliable intelligence information compared
to coercive interrogation methods. They have found that intelligence gathered through coercion is sometimes
inaccurate or false and that some direct tactics may cause emotional and psychological discomfort that may
significantly impact the ability of the source to recall information accurately.
The WZ Non-Confrontational Method has proven to be of significant value in educing, or drawing out, information from
suspects and sources. In many cases, the subject can be engaged in such a manner that he or she reveals information
without being aware of giving away anything of value. This may be especially important in establishing rapport, opening
conversation and maintaining interaction with a source that appears initially unwilling to provide information.
Combining the WZ Non-Confrontational Method and other methods of interrogation affords the interviewer multiple
pathways to interview a subject, rather than a single approach. Flexibility of approach allows the interrogator to alter
strategies depending on the reactions of the suspect.
