Contains Registration Info



Course Description:

The focus of this advanced training is to familiarize the new or seasoned police officer and all investigators, with the various disciplines of "detecting deception". This unique course is the only of its kind on the market because it combines Behavioral Analysis (body language, non-verbals) and Forensic Statement Analysis (FSA) into one class. Officers will simultaneously learn two new powerful tools to keep them safe while enhancing their ability to obtain voluntary, court preferred confessions.

Forensic Statement Analysis (FSA) is a scientific, investigative tool used to analyze written and/or oral statements taken from a person of "interest", whether a suspect, victim, complainant, or a witness since the ultimate goal is to identify the truth. FSA eliminates or minimizes biases and prejudices and systematically determines the use and omissions of specific words, phrases, content, grammar and other identifiers to determine a truthful, balanced statement. A person's own words will ultimately and unwittingly betray them as they provide indicators of deception through hidden clues of: "omissions", "improper changes in language", "lack of commitment" as well as identifying close and distant relationships to other person's, objects and events. These and many other indicators are made obvious and readily identifiable to the trained individual. In advanced applications, statements can also be converted into numbers whereby they are subjected to a mathematical formula. Attendees will perform verbal analysis on videotaped oral interviews to practice and demonstrate the effectiveness of FSA. To further reinforce their proficiencies and understanding of these concepts attendees are assigned individual homework which will be reviewed on the following class day.
