This course introduces best practices when conducting juvenile interrogation and interviews. The focus is on what constitutes adequate juvenile warnings, valid wavers, and what you must do to make sure the juvenile's confession you may obtain will be allowed by the court.
You will learn how the U.S. Supreme Court has recognized the emotional and developmental differences between adults and juveniles. These differences must be considered when you conduct an interview or interrogation of a juvenile. You must observe the legal rights of juveniles and protect against charges of police coercion or intimidation during interviews and interrogations of juveniles.
