Project Description

In the last few years there have been major improvements in the way that police officers interview child witnesses and children who have been the victims of physical or sexual abuse. We want to investigate ways to further improve police interviews. This would include looking at the most appropriate interview style, and the most effective types of questions to use when dealing with young vulnerable children.
