Can you imagine what a disaster it would be if you were having a house built and the subcontractors were working off different blueprints? The guys who poured the foundation had a different blueprint than the guys who were framing the house; and the electrician and plumber were routing wires and pipes all over the place. What would the house end up looking like? It would certainly not look like the original plan. Or how about a football team with 50% of the players running one play and 50% running a completely different play. Will they likely be successful? Not likely. When there is team-involvement such as building a house or playing football, everyone must be on the same page in order to get it right from the start. The same is true for your team...police officers and investigators in law enforcement!
Statement Analysis for Patrol & First Responders was developed at request of detectives who have had training and excellent success after going through our "Investigative Statement Analysis; Truth through what they S.A.I.D." training program. The detectives and investigators who completed this training felt that the front line, the patrol officers, would benefit greatly from this type of information. This would also put them (patrol & detectives) on the same page with investigations, since the first responders are the initial investigators and often take the first statements.
Statement Analysis for Patrol & First Responders will enhance the ability of initial responding officers to obtain accurate and reliable information from individuals they encounter throughout their shift and to help distinguish between truthfulness and possible deception, which is a critical skill and safety issue for officers on the street. Understanding the value and importance of the words people use, orally as well as written, will not only improve the officers own investigations but will further provide a solid foundation for investigative follow-up by detectives should the case be passed on. Information obtained in the early stages of an investigation will help to pave the way for a successful outcome. If that information is obtained incorrectly, misread or contaminated by inappropriate questioning, the investigation can end up being sidetracked, waste time and money, and end up being suspended without appropriate closure. If you don’t know what to look for, you don’t know what you’re missing!
