Wicklander-Zulawski & Associates (WZ), the world leader in interview and interrogation training, is seeking seminar partners in select areas of North America. WZ can provide proprietary in-house training for an agency’s own members or a co-sponsored interview and interrogation program to include area departments. This is a terrific opportunity for agencies to provide their officers, investigators and special agents with the finest law enforcement training available without the added expenses of travel, lodging, and time.

WZ’s expert instructors facilitate programs on a variety of topics including the effective use of the WZ Non-Confrontational Interview and Interrogation Technique and the Reid Method* of Interview and Interrogation.  The program topics, length, format, and content can be customized to meet your organization’s needs.

WZ offers onsite training for attendees on either a contract or co-sponsored basis.  With either the contract or the co-sponsor option, the hosting agency will need to provide a suitable training location.

Contract Program

Any of WZ’s seminars can be conducted on a contract basis. A contract program offers the agency a specific number of attendees at a fixed rate.  This allows an organization to estimate its costs accurately and to train more investigators at a reduced cost.  The participants who attend the contract programs are employees of the contracting organization or agency.  Investigators from other agencies may be invited at the discretion of the contracting organization.

Benefits of a Contract Class:

  • Seminars can be scheduled with little advance notice and coordinated to accommodate preferred dates.
  • WZ will customize the course to meet the specific needs of your organization and participants.
  • WZ’s Certified Forensic Interviewers are experienced instructors and nationally recognized subject matter experts.
  • The host agency has complete control of who attends the seminar.
  • The class is presented locally so there is no travel, lodging or extra per diem expenses.

Co-Sponsored Seminar

The host agency will partner with WZ to deliver a co-sponsored program. The host agency will need to provide a training location and some marketing support while WZ provides expert instructors, the training program, manuals, handouts, marketing materials, and registration.  WZ will promote the event to area law enforcement agencies and be responsible for the production of marketing flyers, seminar materials, speaker expenses, registration and invoicing.  The host agency will be compensated for the training location and marketing support with free training slots in the seminar.

Benefits of a Co-Sponsored Seminar:

  • WZ is responsible for all promotional materials, speaker expenses, registrations and invoicing.
  • The host agency receives free seats in the seminar and only has to pay to register additional attendees beyond the complimentary registrations.
  • WZ provides a national coordinator to market the program and support the seminar.
  • WZ’s Certified Forensic Interviewers are experienced instructors and nationally recognized subject matter experts.
  • The host agency showcases its department as a leader in professional training by providing a valuable service to local law enforcement.
