The study deals with the conversational maxims of operation targets in police investigative interviews. This study attempted to investigate the types of conversational maxims (obedience and violations) by using the theory of conversational maxims. This study was conducted by using descriptive qualitative design. The source of data in this study were the operation targets which investigated by the police on The Police Reality Show Trans 7, and the data were taken from The Police Reality Show Trans 7. The data of this study were utterances consist of obedience and violation maxim in police investigative interview on The Police Reality Show Trans 7. The utterances in investigative interviews were downloaded and transcribed in order to be analysed. Then, the data were analysed by using interactive model of Miles, Huberman, and Saldana. The findings show that all types of maxims namely maxim of quality, maxim of quantity, maxim of manner, and maxim of relevance were occurred during investigative interviews. Obedience and violation of conversational maxims can be found in the police investigative interviews. From the analysis it is found that the conversational maxims are tend to be obeyed than violated by the operation targets in police investigative interviews. The obedience of the conversational maxim might be due to the power possessed by the police. In police-operation target communication, the police possess higher power so the operation targets tried to be cooperative and give the best contribution by obeying the conversational maxims, however the maxims violation still can be found in investigative interviews because the operation target tried to defend himself so that they will be avoided from the sanction.
