Obtaining intelligence on transnational crime is critical during all phases of an investigation. HUMINT has proven to be one of the most effective methods in gathering information, especially with the use of effective interview and interrogation techniques. The goal of this course to familiarize both new and seasoned military and law enforcement investigators with the various disciplines of detecting deception when engaged with face to face interviewing. This is accomplished though learning to recognize non-verbal body language, eye-assessing cues (neurolinguistics), and by being introduced to the newest form of conducting a detailed analysis of verbal and written statements. This unique course offers investigators insight as to what a person is actually saying, and, most importantly, what they are not saying. Attendees are challenged to analyze a variety of written statements to evaluate their validity and the value of the information contained when dealing with transnational offenders/suspects engaged in terrorism, drug trafficking, and money laundering. The students will also view multiple recorded sessions of actual interviews. The students are also invited to participate in group and individual class assignments involving factual cases.
Course topics include:
 Avoiding interviewing pitfalls
 Mandated interview questions
 Verbal lie detection
 Analyzing verbal and written statements
 Open and closed end questions
 Dignity and confession
 Teaching the subject to lie
 Establishing a “Power of Influence”
