Yesterday: Foundation Degree Policing. 15:30hrs.
Maria, with her light touch, explaining to her students
some of the problems involved in conducting
the contemporaneous notes interview
which, importantly, was not the same as
taking a statement. Rubberneckers, for instance,
after an accident; when the interviewee changes tack
and asks you to leave the house, now,
and politely. Best to begin with general questions
to ease yourself, and the other person, in.
What was the weather like?
How were you feeling?
Where were you going?
Then employ TED: Tell me. Explain. Describe.
This morning outside the garage: One bottle of Moet,
three-quarters full; two plastic beakers and a used condom.
