JUS 441 Topic 4  Interrogation and Investigation Techniques

Instructions: Answer the five questions below. Please review and respond to each of the following questions. Each response should be substantive, meaning at least three to four sentences demonstrating analytical thought. If the response is simply yes or no, or a short single sentence, you will likely receive either partial or no credit for that question.


Each question is worth 10 points each. The instructor is looking for the substantiveness of responses, whether you provide a response that meets the minimum word count (50-100 words), and whether you provided citations (when applicable). Your responses will also be reviewed for logic. NOTE: Even though this information may come from the textbook, you are expected to state the information in your own words and cite it.
