Chameleon’s investigative interviewing is proactive, results-oriented and highly effect.  It aims to make the most of the time and resources an organization devotes to its mitigation efforts against both criminal and terrorist threat.  Interviews are one of the best and most effective tools available. 
 An interviewer needs to carefully prepare for an interview, gather intelligence and make the best of various tools and technologies.  In the course of the exchange, he has to be able to evaluate the information, behavior, body language of an interviewee and make a determination as to the potential threat posed.  A valuable by-product of interviews is the collection of information that if used and disseminated correctly, can be part of an overall security effort.
The nature of the threat is such that an organization needs to act quickly and take initiative to apprehend, mitigate or defuse indications of potential, hostile activities.  This is one more reason why solid training is imperative.
