Garner PD to host Tactical Interviewing Course

Give your Officers the Competitive Edge!
Tactical Interviewing Course

Gain the ability to detect veracity and deception during interviews and interrogations through nonverbal behaviors and statement analysis. Until now, nonverbal behavioral analysis and statement analysis were used and taught separately as powerful investigative tools for law enforcement officers. This course combines the two techniques into a more effective and complete investigative interviewing and interrogation tool

Course Description: This course will teach students to identify evidence-based behavioral indicators that occur when an individual lies under high-stakes situations. These indicators include nonverbal “hotspots” – the micro and subtle facial expressions and other nonverbal behaviors that are part of one’s emotional leakage, as well as linguistic and grammatic cues based on statement analysis techniques learned concurrently. Once the indicators are identified, strategies are employed to conduct more in depth interviews. This course is designed to provide administrators and investigators with a structured method of examining behavioral indicators during investigative interviewing. Students will develop specific tools and scientifically proven strategies to use in analyzing the behavioral indicators exhibited by employees, applicants, witnesses, victims and suspects.
