Yet More on False Confessions and the Reid Technique

WCB follower “Greg” has alerted me to a piece from the Canadian Broadcasting Company’s show “The National” regarding false confessions and the Reid Technique.  The video is 17 minutes, and is compelling.  I am posting his comment and a link to the video here:

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s June 24th Sunday night newscast, “The National”,” had a lengthy story on false confessions, the Reid method, and the substitute “P.E.A.C.E.” model, imported from Britain, now being used in Newfoundland, instead of the Reid method. Links to the piece and other materials can be found on the newscast’s website.

  1. Good follow-up. The P.E.A.C.E. method of interrogation makes much more sense than the omnipresent Reid technique. I hope more police departments consider it as an alternative.

    Did Mr. Buckley have a response to this video?

  3. Mr. Buckley responded by referring CBC News to a page on the Reid website “Clarifying Misinformation about the Reid Technique”. There’s a link on the CBC web page to it. http://www.cbc.ca/thenational/includes/pdf/reidresponse.pdf
