Many organizations manufacturing and distributing illicit narcotics within the United States are specially trained to evade and deceive law enforcement officers when questioned. Gathering information from the lowest level dealer and then turning the information into action is the most effective means of infiltrating higher levels of drug networks and is successful in curbing the flow of drugs. Gathering accurate and predictive information through interviews and interrogations increases the success rates of identifying new targets and prosecution.
This course is designed to enable federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement professionals to enhance their ability to gain information and determine the truth about illicit narcotics activity through the interview and interrogation process. It teaches specialized skills that enable detection of deception through non-verbal and verbal communication with both theory and practical application.
