SPOTTING LIES: Investigative Statement Analysis

Investigative Statement Analysis is the structured examination of an individual's verbatim words for the purpose of conducting more in-depth interviews. This presentation is designed to provide administrators and investigators with a structured method of examining verbal and written communication. Through practical demonstrations, attendees will learn about specific linguistic tools and strategies to use in analyzing the oral and written words provided by employees, applicants, witnesses, victims and suspects.

Within the law enforcement context, Investigative Statement Analysis is used as an investigative tool to gain insight into an individual's thoughts, motivations and ideas. Statement Analysis is also used to recognize areas of veracity and to detect areas of possible deception.

Getting the Truth

Getting the truth is not easy.  We learn at an early age to tell partial truths to avoid telling complete lies.  Precise communication prevents and uncovers partial truths.  Imprecise communication nurtures deception. Developing special skills will help find the truth. The attendee will learn these skills through lecture and examples.

Evaluating Truthfulness and Detecting Deception through Verbal and Nonverbal Indicators

Participants learn how lies "leak out" - primarily through the face and involuntary microexpressions - and how to detect these signs of leakage through multiple channels of nonverbal behaviors.  Additionally, participants learn to analyze verbal statements to identify meaningful content areas where "there is more to the story than is being told".  Within the law enforcement context, nonverbal behavioral analysis and statement analysis are powerful investigative tools when used separately and until now, these techniques have traditionally been taught separately to law enforcement officers. This course combines the two techniques into a more powerful investigative interviewing and interrogation tool. These techniques make the investigator more efficient and effective and instills greater confidence in his beliefs regarding veracity and deception.

Sticks and Stones: A Cyberbullying Train-the-Trainer

Today's youth have grown up in a world that is very different from that of most adults. Many young people experience the Internet and other technological advancements as a positive, productive and creative part of their lives and development of their identities - always on and always there.

Unfortunately, these same technologies are also being used in a negative manner.  One such abuse involves bullying via electronic means, or Cyberbullying.  Previously safe and enjoyable environments and activities can all too quickly turn threatening and become a source of anxiety.  Current research in this area indicates that Cyberbullying is a part of many young people's lives.

The introductory part of this presentation will provide a brief overview of the technology available to today's teens, current internet trends, technological challenges to law enforcement, how Cyberbullying differs from traditional bullying, and the greater implications of Cyberbullying.

The presentation will also include a screening of the Cyberbullying film "Sticks and Stones" and a Train-the-Trainer block of instruction that will enable attendees to deploy this anti-Cyberbullying program in their respective communities.  Attendees of this session will be provided with a DVD* containing the "Point of No Return" video series, including "Sticks and Stones" and "The Web".  The comprehensive Teacher's Guides for each will also be made available.

The latter part of this presentation will offer a detailed case study by a law enforcement official that illustrates the devastation that Cyberbullying can cause.

Cyber Concerns for Law Enforcement in the 21st Century

Previously, law enforcement viewed cyber matters to be limited solely to investigation of child pornography and predators on the Internet.  However, in the 21st Century Law Enforcement now has a host of other issues to face that are changing the landscape of crime as well as threats to officers themselves.

Whether it is Internet fraud that causes the loss of a citizen's life savings, a computer intrusion against the community's businesses, the threat of cyber terrorism against the city's infrastructure, or a cyber attack focused against individual officers, to include those who lead their agencies, law enforcement today needs to understand the cyber threats.  Likewise, because resources are limited and few law enforcement agencies have the technical expertise available within their ranks, law enforcement needs to further understand where and how to leverage the necessary assets to address these problems.

This course, complete with handout, is designed to inform law enforcement of the various issues and provide suggestions on how best to respond.

Organizational Goals and Stress-free Fundamentals for Women

Women often lead stressful lives. We regularly attempt to juggle the pressures of working a full time job while being a mother and a wife. At times the demand for our attention to everyday mundane responsibilities encompassed with the relentless pressure that we place on ourselves to fix everything, results in a sense of frustration to the point of physical and mental exhaustion. This course is designed to help women take a step back, examine their self-worth and recognize their valuable contributions to their spouses, children and family.

Bulletproof Spirit: Essential Guide toward Emotional Survival and Wellness

Suicide is the #1 cause of death for police officers every year. An estimated 120,000 officers work every day with symptoms of PTSD. Only 3% of agencies have a suicide prevention/awareness program. Most agencies do not have a Peer Support team or a Wellness Program to promote emotional survival. With over 900 hours of police academy training in California, at most 2-4 hours are typically devoted to emotional survival.
           

Officers distressed with PTSD and emotional suffering are incapable of providing effective professional service to the community. Well-trained and emotionally healthy officers provide the best chance to preserve the safety of our communities.

Executive Leadership

The Professionalization of Executive Leadership with Competency Based Online Education

Executives have had many leadership courses.  But few, if any of them, have been competency and research-based.  Using the "Leadership Skills Inventory" and the book, "Every Officer Is A Leader", and the Credible Leadership Series of courses, police executives will have a way to continue their leadership development journey long after they complete the FBI NAA, and educate their entire workforce in much-needed leadership competencies and applicable field-tested theories.

Leading High-Performance Teams with the Four Secret Skills of Aggressive Followership

In our hyper-competitive world, few people are working hard to be known as a great "follower," but the best leaders began their journey by developing strong followership skills.  International leadership icons like Malcolm Forbes, WalMart's Sam Walton, Fred Smith of FedEx, and "Coach K" - Duke University basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski - all practiced followership relentlessly as they progressed in their careers, and they all learned it in the same place: as members of the U.S. military.

Why is followership an essential form of leadership that you have to demonstrate throughout your whole career? Because all leaders are also still followers: they are still accountable to someone else above them. Even the Director of the FBI has a boss. Mastering the four roles and secret skills of followership will ensure the success of your high-performance team through better communication and teamwork in the paradoxically simultaneous roles of follower and leader.

Great Leadership Focusing on Our Mission & People

Great leaders motivate and inspire others to work as a team to accomplish the organization's mission. This requires a focus on the mission and a focus on your people. One key element shared by all exceptional organizations is personnel who have buy-in and a passion for the organization's culture and goals. How do great leaders create this passion and enthusiasm? This presentation reviews historical applications of leadership, identifies and discusses six key components of great leadership, and offers attendees the opportunity to conduct a self-assessment  of their leadership abilities. Leadership pillars will be discussed to assist leaders in improving themselves, their departments, and their people - creating exceptional leaders and exceptional organizations!

Use of Force & Liability

The DOJ has increased its investigations of alleged excessive force and abuse by police departments, leading to more departments being placed under federal oversight. Media scrutiny of police use of force events has become even more intense and millions are paid out each year in excessive force lawsuits. If officers use too little force, they can be injured or killed. If officers use too much force, they and their departments face severe liability as well as possible criminal charges. This presentation will view landmark use of force events and recent court decisions providing guidance to officers in the "reasonable" use of force. The strategies used by plaintiff's attorneys will be presented, as well as the necessary step to minimize officer and departmental liability.

Leading by Example: Exemplifying the Behavior You Want to See in Others

The acronym "ICRELIEF" is used as a conceptual framework to present various leadership concepts germane to a professional position within an organization. These concepts can be applied to both an individual's personal and professional life. How an individual reacts to choices, change, commitment, creativity, control, confidence, responsibility, enthusiasm, leadership, investment, expectant attitude and humor, largely determines
whether they have what it takes to "Lead by Example."

Employee Development and Wellness-Healthy Hire-Healthy Retire

Employee wellness should not wait for crisis to occur, but should begin during the hiring process. Wellness should include preventative programs aimed at both the professional and personal development of employees. Workplace experts advocate that by identifying healthy applicants and partnering to maintain employee health, the organization has the potential to improve morale and productivity and reduce complaints and liability. For companies that can fire, hire and train a new employee in half a day the long-term health of employees is negligible. For public safety organizations, with lengthy hiring processes and huge investments in money, training, equipment and reputation; it is imperative to identify "ideal" candidates and then work to keep them healthy.

Transitioning to the RIGHT Career

When you transition form Law Enforcement do you want a job, a career, or the RIGHT career? The Right career requires that you know:

Employee Relations

Reset The Clock - Replace Liability with Credibility:  Practical Employee Relations for Leaders in Law Enforcement

Reset The Clock:  A process used throughout the program that prevents plaintiff attorneys from taking something leaders did wrong or did not do and using it to attack future employee relations decisions that they make.  Past events cannot be used to support future legal claims.  In effect, both department and personal liability clocks are reset. This program focuses on "what to do."  It provides a leadership framework that concentrates on what matters:  Attendance - Performance - Conduct. In this highly interactive and entertaining program specifically designed for leaders in law enforcement, situation-specific advice is provided: Effective employee relations tactics that minimize department and personal liability; Scripted responses to use in sensitive employee relations situations; How to avoid hearing "You should have anticipated this" after an avoidable legal claim; Leaders gain skill and increased confidence in handling employee relations situations that, while difficult and uncomfortable, must be addressed carefully to prevent legal problems.
