In May 2023, NCMPUR approached us as they were leading an intel-lead initiative on the use of return interviews and working towards creating a best practice structured interview that could be adapted and adopted by any police agency in Canada.
To support them, we developed a bespoke package of training and consultancy which included an in-depth 3.5-hour online training session. This training session focused on:
This was teamed with an opportunity for delegates to speak to our expert panel which included Holly Pitt, Josie Allan, Rachel Ellis and Paul Joseph.
In addition to training, our specialists also shared best practice return home interview documentation and provided consultancy feedback on their proposed return interview forms.
“I cannot tell you enough how valuable the session was, particularly with regard to getting our draft Return Support Discussion questions down to a manageable set of open-ended questions”.

Missing People enjoyed working with Canada’s National Centre for Missing Persons and Unidentified Remains (NCMPUR) and are looking forward to seeing how this work progresses over the coming year.
