What is the relationship between trauma, arrests and incarceration history regarding black Americans?
In one study published in Society and Mental Health, they concluded that overall, 80.6 percent of people who participated in the research reported experiencing at least one traumatic event; 79.1% of women and 82.6% of men. The lifetime prevalence for PTSD in this population was 8.7%, with 11.5% among women and 5.1% among men. More than 90% of individuals who had been in prison also experienced at least one general traumatic event, including 25% who experienced war-related trauma. Exposure to trauma among those reporting incarceration as a juvenile was high as well, whereas approximately 70% of this group experienced at least 4 traumatic events, and one in four met criteria for PTSD.

What is the difference between a police interview and an interrogation?
A police interview is designed to get as much information as possible about a crime. It is generally informal. The police do not challenge a person's responses. They simply ask additional questions to gain more information. At the time of the interview, a person may or may not be a suspect. Miranda Warnings are not necessary and the person being interviewed is not in custody. They are free to leave at will. It is acceptable for investigators to take notes during an interview. Interviews are generally 30-60 minutes long. A potential suspect may offer an alibi that can be verified or disproved at some point during the investigation. A police interrogation is designed to elicit a confession from a suspect. This is questioning that is done formally and systematically whereas the investigator dominates the conversation. It is intentionally accusatory in nature. During an interrogation the suspect is reasonably believed to be guilty, and the suspect may be under arrest. Miranda Warnings are required if the suspect is in custody. Taking notes during interrogations is unacceptable. There is no time limit on an interrogation within reason. Interrogations should be observed by another investigator.
