False or coerced confessions are a confounding phenomenon. In this session, we will shed light on those issues by beginning with discussing police methods of interrogating which lead innocent people to seemingly confess to crimes they did not commit. We will also explain the science behind good interrogation methods which not only do not result in false confessions but increase the reliable and accurate information obtained during an interrogation.
