Comments from the Arizona Public Defender's Annual Conference, June 24 to 26, 2011, Tempe, Arizona.   
Excellent; loved to see how interrogations are done and why. Good info; would like more focus on impeaching officers on their technique and actions in eliciting confessions. Good perspective on what cops do. Very good as an ex-police officer have seen these methods used and taught before. Paul Carroll knows what he is talking about. He is very professional. Please bring him back next year. Not bad; a little rushed there were a lot of slides in the presentation. Great info. Good; makes subject material fun. Very knowledgeable, holds interest. Great speaker. Paul Carroll; very good. I enjoyed his anecdotes. Great presenter as usual.  
Good info.  Great. Very useful and informative and fun. Gave it a 10. Very good, exhibits were compelling. Great class lots of info and very entertaining. The presentation was well organized and well explained. Good. One of the best classes would really like to see more time devoted to this area of interaction. Maybe a two part with time to cover more topics.  
Funny. Like this speaker, he is very personal and good info. Paul entertained as well informed. Brought interest to class. Keep him coming back he is great! Very knowledgeable and a good presenter. Would take more class, was a wealth of experience. Paul was very interesting, kept attention. I think his presentation should be more for attorneys than staff. Good, again made subject material interesting. Had two classes with Paul one of the best instructors here, great source of information. Sure was knowledgeable.  He can do it again next year.
