Investigators must obtain information to investigate. Often, the objective of an interview is to obtain an acknowledgement of something that is known to the interviewer; an admission of involvement in a matter under investigation, or a confession to being the perpetrator of a crime or serious violation. It is imperative that the interviewer obtains truthful information from an interviewee in a lawful and ethical manner.

The interviewer must be aware of current laws and regulations that govern interviews. The interviewer must also be aware of current trends and negative public opinion regarding interviewer tactics used to elicit information from an interviewee, even if the information is truthful. Truthful information that has been elicited by coercion or force can be invalidated and the interviewer can face serious consequences. The interviewer should be thinking forensically in that he or she must be prepared to articulate to a tribunal the method used to obtain information, including admissions and confessions from an interviewee.
