Is a tool that is highly effective in the detection of deception and the identification of hidden information in a person’s written or spoken statements. The analysis involves critically examining the word choice, structure, and content of a person’s statement to determine whether it is truthful or deceptive. As people intentionally attempt to be deceitful subconsciously they use different words, phrases, statement structure, and content in their statements.
Research by experts in the fields of language, psychology and deception detection has led to the identification of these trends in language that are referred to as "linguistic signals". Using Investigative Statement Analysis (series of eight layered techniques) you will identify these linguistic signals that differentiate deceptive statements from truthful ones as your suspect subconsciously reveals information they did not intend for you to know. This course is very interactive with significant hands-on, statement analysis practice.
This IS NOT Handwriting Analysis.
Objectives: The student will be able to:
- Recognize a valid statements and how to collect them;
- List the two step process required for analysis;
- List the parts of speech that are used during analysis;
- List the importance of balance of a statement;
- Be able to identify “Linguistic Signals”;
- Conduct an analysis of a written statement;
- Develop a basic ability to interpret the results of an analysis, and;
- Produce investigative questions derived during analysis, using the suspect’s words against them, compelling them to confess.
Target Audience: This course is designed for those assigned to an investigative function (Detectives, Arson, PI) but is very popular at the patrol and dispatch level as well.

Approved:TCLEOSEID POSTWA CJTC Building Public Safety Relationships for the Public Good8 - hours / 1 - day
SYNOPSIS: When it comes to large incidents, it’s important that everyone works together as a team and that management of the scene is well-coordinated. This happens best when there are strong relationships and understanding of roles prior to the event. However, incident management can struggle or even fail when one agency tries to do too much or when responders are unaware of how others fit into the overall picture.
This course aims to provide guidance and examples on how communities can build a “team” mindset in order to better handle anything that may arise in order to save lives, save money and save face! This course will be a mix of team-oriented discussion and review of prior incidents and random scenarios, and students will leave with an initial plan of action for their own community.
