    Interview Vs Interrogation

    Similarities, you are trying to gather information in both.

    Differences, in an interview you are attempting to gather information from a witness,victim,subject(not yet a suspect),reporting party, etc. This can turn into an interrogation based on what information you receive.

    In an interrogation, you are asking specific questions about a crime with a person whom you believe committed that crime or has information that could lead to the suspect or facts. An interrogation, is a gloves off interview. There are many ways to go about it. Miranda and Interrogation is a fine line. To be safe you should read the person their rights, but if you have a great working knowledge of Miranda, there are ways to interrogate without actually reading someone their rights. An arrest only exists when that person is in custody and you are interrogating them. Custody, the person is not free to leave, ie: handcuffs locked in the back of a car. Miranda is only necessary when that person is under arrest.

    In an interview you are looking for general information but in an interrogation you are generally looking for specific information. You interview someone to find out what happened but you interrogate because you think you already know and want to confirm it.

    An interview is a softer approach, used to find facts. You could interview a witness, a victim, or even a suspect. An interrogation is confrontational, used to develop evidence to be used against the person in court.

    If they read your Miranda rights, you're being interrogated. In that case, you should always waive them and ask for a lawyer. The detective has to, by law, shut up right there and end the questioning.
