It’s important to be “emotionally open” to the pain and fear clients and victims feel, Strang said, as well as to what drives law enforcement. Without emotions, he said, you’re just a technician.

“Technicians don’t connect with judges, they don’t connect with juries, and they don’t connect with clients,” he said. “Unless you connect with a client, you’re not really able to walk this journey with a client, and that’s a large part of what a client needs.”
