  • Training in Florida Statement Analysis, Interview and Interrogation Techniques

    The Auburndale Police Department is hosting an intensive 5-day Statement Analysis, Interview and Interrogation Techniques Training Course for police officers and investigators December 3-7, 2007. The course will be presented by the Alpha Group Center for Crime and Intelligence Analysis and taught by retired Sgt. John Kaster, master polygraphist for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).

    With his exceedingly unique ability to detect deception from both the WRITTEN and oral statements of suspects, victims, and witnesses, for fourteen years John Kaster has served as Manager of the world renowned RCMP Canadian Police College Polygraph Training School. Additionally, he is an internationally recognized authority and trainer in the fields of cognitive interviewing, statement analysis, and interrogation. He has presented his courses to police officers in the United States, Canada, Singapore, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Bolivia.

    This is a HIGH QUALITY, PERFORMANCE-ORIENTED, “LEARN-BY-DOING” TRAINING COURSE designed for police officers, major crimes investigators, sex crimes investigators, prosecutorial personnel who may be required to appraise the testimony of victims, witnesses, and suspects, and others whose jobs involve interviewing and evaluating the truthfulness of people.

    The course takes a "hands-on" approach to training. Participants are given numerous opportunities to actually prepare and conduct statement analyses, interviews, and interrogations. Students learn how to determine instantly when someone is lying, how to know exactly where a subject is editing a story, how to tailor-make interrogation themes that make suspects want to confess, and how to develop dynamic interviewing plans. They also learn how to effectively control the interview process, how to develop critical listening skills, how to deal with the “I don’t remember” response, how to improve their own memories, and much, much more.

    Each participant will receive a copy of “The Criminal Investigator’s Resource Guide for Interviewing, Statement Analysis, and Interrogation.” Written by John Kaster, this manual and its accompanying step-by-step Workbook explain how to use written as well as verbal statements to detect deception, how to design bait questions, how to handle and stop denials, how to overcome objections, and how to set the stage for the interview and interrogation process.

    Tuition for the course is $525 and includes the week of instruction, the text, the workbook, and related course materials.

    For more information or to register for the class, interested persons should contact Sgt. Roger Tribble of the Auburndale Police Department at (863) 965-5555 or email [email protected].
