One technique that is commonly used by police officers who are investigating a crime is the Reid Technique, developed by John E. Reid & Associates, Inc. The Reid technique is a manipulative and coercive interview and interrogation technique that is used to try to convince you to confess to a crime, through intimidation and deceit. It is based on inaccurate assumptions about human behavior that the officer will then use to convince both you and the investigator that you are guilty and should just confess.
One of the most unpleasant experiences faced by many drivers comes when you see the red and blue flashing lights in our rearview mirror. Many times, you already have an idea about why you are being pulled over; sometimes, you don't. Regardless, how handle that (hopefully) brief exchange with the police officer can have a lasting impact on your driving record, or possibly even on your criminal record.
