Agent Horowitz just received a phone call from Supervisor Agent Fallon that Mr. Alex Rosamilla is in state custody for transporting 100 kilos of cocaine. He is now being transferred into federal custody. Supervisor Fallon asks Agent Horowitz to debrief Mr. Rosamilla at the federal court house.
Develop a debriefing report.

I agree with post 2. There isn't much to debrief the suspect on. He should be informed of the change in custody. He will need to know what his rights are and how his rights will be different in federal custody verse state custody. He may want to know where he will be detained now that he is in federal custody. It might also be helpful for him to understand the differences in his housing now that he is no longer in state custody. If the federal government has different rights in terms of sentencing, he may need to be aware of that as well. For instance, the federal government may have the right to deport him when the state did not.
Yes, you have to explain to the suspect what he is charged with and where he is being taken. You can then interrogate him, to find out the circumstances behind his having the drugs and what he has to say for himself on the charges. You also need to inform the suspect of his rights first, of course.
