The Reid Conference for Investigative Training
Certification in the Reid Technique

Every year thousands of investigators attend our seminar on the Reid Technique of Interviewing and Interrogation. Many consider it to be the most beneficial training of their careers.

The Reid Institute encourages members to further develop their investigative skills by attending quality-training programs from a variety of fields related to investigation.
