Course Description:This course is tailor made for Public Safety employees with the need to
determine truth and deception. This course was developed from proven
field tactics that were solidified in state and federal court. Students start by learning the basis of all communication and how to
effectively conduct field interviews in less-than-perfect environments. Then move into an advanced
perspective of the interrogation process and discuss a multitude of
useful techniques for getting to the truth. Training concepts are solidified during mock
interrogations, before displaying their new skills during courtroom testimony.
Don't make someone do this for you, learn these techniques now!
Attend: Patrol Officers, Jail/Prison Officers, Detectives,
Agents, Arson Investigators
