How can you tell if he is lying?" asked the young officer. "Were his lips moving?" responded the veteran police investigator. This dialogue is frequently heard among law enforcement officers and contains some elements of truth. Human behavior, such as being deceptive, can be difficult to read but presents one of the most reliable means of determining truth. Recent studies report that people typically lie only 5% of the time; that means 95% of their statements are true (to the best of their knowledge). The challenge for law enforcement officers is to identify the deception and respond appropriately.
This course will provide officers with basic deception concepts by introducing 11 principles of behavior analysis, contrasting natural v. defensive behaviors, identifying physical and verbal indicators of truthfulness and deception, and looking at methods of analyzing words and phrases used by complainants, witnesses and suspects when communicating with officers. Instruction will include role playing and group activities.
