About UsWe're on a mission to advance investigative interviewing training and practice
At IMS our mission is to advance investigative interviewing, both in terms of training and operational practice. Investigations are becoming increasingly complex and in a digital world where technology has already delivered improvements across policing, it’s now clear that paper-based methods used to plan, conduct and evaluate investigative interviews are no longer fit for purpose.
The TILES System® was born in the classroom. As an eLearning tool, the solution has re-written the way investigative interviewing can be trained. Students are now able to learn collaboratively and develop a clear and simplified understanding of complex interviewing strategies using cutting-edge eLearning multimedia.
Operationally, the efficiencies delivered by the TILES System® will raise professional interviewing standards, drive savings, and enhance the supervision and management of the interviewing workflow. For the first time, Interviewing teams, Interview Advisors and Senior Investigating Officers have a standardised digital framework within which to operate.
The IMS client list is growing year on year as more forward-thinking agencies come onboard seeking to enhance the performance of their staff through cutting-edge investigative interviewing training and achieve operational efficiencies in digitising their investigative interviewing workflows.
Our training teams are led by experienced investigators who each have extensive teaching experience with leading Universities.
Management of the bespoke design and delivery of your agency’s training program will be undertaken by:
