With more than 30 years of experience, PII provides training in investigation techniques, and consults with both corporations and public-sector organizations seeking to enhance their internal investigation processes. These organizations utilize PII’s expertise to train their staffs and assist in developing state of the art investigation processes.
PII has developed a model for investigator training that uses a combination of classroom instruction, case studies, role-plays, and simulated investigations. Known as “The Truth Matters”® training, PII’s program has been used as a training tool for human resources managers, attorneys, law enforcement, in-house investigators, and law students. “The Truth Matters”® training focuses on honing participants’ analytical and interview skills, while sharpening their recognition of investigative biases and common assumptions that can prevent them from discovering the truth. This program can be customized for any organization.
PII’s president and founder, Keith Rohman, is a senior faculty member of the National Workplace Training Institute of the Association of Workplace Investigators (AWI) and an adjunct professor at Loyola Law School, teaching investigation technique. Rohman and other PII staff regularly lecture on investigation methods and practices for attorneys and human resources professionals throughout the U.S. and Canada.
