Abstract:This study has focused on the effect of already knowing the outcome of a police interrogation on evaluating the quality of this police interrogation. The hypothesis was that an interrogation is judged more positively when the interrogation results in a true confession than when it leads to a false confession. The study examines the effect of outcome information (e.g. receiving information that the suspect is guilty, receiving information that the suspect is innocent, or not receiving any information about guilt at all) on how people evaluate the quality of a police interrogation. An online study was conducted where participants got to view a video of a real-life interrogation. Afterwards, participants judged the general quality of the interrogation and the planning, preparation, explaining, engaging, accounting, questioning skills and the characteristics of the interrogator.
