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!

Who Should Attend: Patrol Officers, Jail/Prison Officers, Detectives, Agents, Arson Investigators

Instructors: Our certified instructors and Master Instructors are field-operators who developed these tactics in the field and solidified them in our courts. They bring with them experience from across the country. Your instructor, Nick Ramos, a retired Sergeant and K9 handler from the New Mexico State Police, brings a wealth of experience gained from over 25 years in law enforcement. As a field operator, he handled hundreds of cases from the small, go-nowhere case, to the large Transnational Criminal Organization, each needing expertise of interviews and interrogations. Nick received many awards including New Mexico's 2010 Officer of the Year and was touted as, "a bloodhound for narcotics" by the U.S. Attorney's office in 2011. Nick continues to hone his craft as a Deputy for the Bernalillo County Sheriff's Office. He is an energetic presenter and speaks for several large organizations including: HIDTA, INIA, BJA, Sheriff's & Chiefs of Police, CNOA, and CNCA. You are sure to have an enjoyable experience with Nick and learn some quick tips.
