Abstract [en]

With new technology new possibilities emanate that can be cost and time effective. The present study examined the differences between face-to-face interrogation, telephone interrogation and chat interrogation when hearing witnesses of crime. The main purpose was to see if there were any differences in number of correct memories, number of incorrect memories and number of incorrect answers to misleading questions depending on method of interrogation used. The study involved a total of appr. 180 participants between ages 18 and 70 years (appr. 50% females and 50% males). Participants were randomly assigned to six different equally large groups: three groups watched a video of a violent crime and were then interrogated using one out of the three methods, face-to-face, by phone or by chat. The other three groups watched a video of a property crime and were then interrogated using one of the three interrogation methods. The analyses will focus on investigating whether there are any significant differences in number of correct memories, number of incorrect memories and number of incorrect answers to misleading questions depending on method of interrogation used. Practical implications for police work will be discussed.
