Is police work an art or a science? This is an appropriate question when discussing interview and interrogation techniques, where the art of conversation collides with the science of psychology and persuasive technique. Add in legal and procedural requirements and it can seem very complicated. But, with a common-sense approach, training, and adherence to law and procedure, most officers have the potential to become skilled in this area.
