Alternative models

The PEACE (Preparation and Planning, Engage and Explain, Account, Closure and Evaluate)[19] model developed in Britain “encourages more of a dialogue between investigator and suspect”.[17]

In 2015, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police adopted a new standard influenced by the PEACE model. Sergeant Darren Carr, who trains police with the new approach, described it as “less Kojak and more Dr. Phil“. This approach eschews the use of deceptive information to overwhelm suspects. It emphasizes information gathering over eliciting confessions and discourages investigators from presuming a suspect’s guilt.[17]
