Course Overview:  This course offers law enforcement professionals a broad range of cutting-edge methods and proprietary tools to conduct more effective interviews.  The benefits are more actionable intelligence, quicker admissions and better statements.

Instruction includes a comprehensive overview of a variety of interview and interrogation techniques to overcome the resistance of a traditional criminal or a terrorist operative.  Seminar participants will learn to assess verbal and non-verbal behavior, to offer rationalizations, handle denials, detect deception and evaluate truthfulness.

The course is especially appropriate for those investigators tasked with the investigation of domestic or foreign terrorism and terrorist-related activities.  Criminal activities traditionally investigated by law enforcement may have provided cover and funding for terrorist organizations in the United States and abroad.  Investigators conducting these inquires will learn to apply interviewing techniques that most often will bring these cases to a successful conclusion.

Seminar topics include:
•    Overview of an Interrogation
•    Legal Aspects of Tactical Field Interviewing
•    Interpretation of Physical and Verbal Behavior
•    Enticement Questions
•    Obtaining the Admission
•    Interview vs Interrogation
•    Counter-Terrorism Interdiction Questioning
•    Cognitive Interviewing
•    Reducing Resistance
•    Developing and Handling Informants

Become more efficient and effective in:
•    Communicating and building trust with community members
•    Assisting subjects in recalling events and details of past activity
•    Obtaining the truth more quickly and accurately
•    Uncovering patterns and trends indicative of criminal activity
•    Substantiating and closing more successful investigations

This course is designed to teach and reinforce the sound fundamentals of the field interviewing process for the patrol officer, field investigator, detective, police officer, special agent, or other law enforcement professional.
