RE3 – Crime DEMO

Learn how to respond most effectively to suspects’ emotional reactions when they’re told they’ve committed a serious crime.


In RE³ Crime you will see a suspects reaction to an interrogator after he’s been told he’s committed a serious crime. You will also choose whether there is high or low incriminating evidence and the emotion shown by the suspect during the interrogation.

Even if you are not an interrogator we believe that you will benefit from RE³. What you will learn should apply to other relationships.

  • Everything that is said, all the choices and feedback, are exactly the same for the male or female interrogator, the suspect will remain male. So, just choose a male or female interrogator and stick with it.
  • You will be able to select which emotion the suspect is feeling, however we will show you sadness first. You will be offered a number of choices about what to say in response.


After you make a choice, you will receive feedback from Dr. Paul Ekman about the advantages or disadvantages of your choice. We encourage you to select all of the choices, even ones you might not consider making, in order to learn from the feedback provided for each choice.
