This Course will enhance the investigator’s ability to assess a subject's credibility - to read and evaluate the verbal and nonverbal behavior symptom displayed by a subject (victim, witness or suspect) during an investigative interview for indications of truth or deception. It will expand the content of the investigative interview by demonstrating the utilization of behavior provoking questions and the appropriate response models. It will increase the investigator’s ability to secure legally acceptable confessions through the use of the Reid Nine Steps of Interrogation, including theme development, stopping denials, overcoming objections and the use of alternative questions. This course includes advanced interrogation training with a special emphasis on developing an interrogation strategy based on the information disclosed by the subject during the interview to more effectively deal with the defiant stage, the neutral stage and the acceptance stage.
