Utilizing the Evading Honesty® system (a cross-cultural/cross-gender system) developed by the instructor and proprietary to Triple I Solutions, the attendee is taught to formulate questions in a manner that is non-coercive and non-confrontational to gain intelligence needed to establish reasonable suspicion for detention and search at roadside. As a part of the process, the attendee will be exposed to techniques to decipher through various data obtained during these face-to-face contacts, by which the attendee will be able to not only identify the criminal element more eﬀectively, but also have the ability to properly document the events in a case report, as well as properly testify to the said actions in various court hearings.
Upon completion of the course, the attendee will have learned about “Target Selection” process, “Rapid Behavioral/Statement Analysis Techniques”, and proper documentation of observed anomalies in a case report. The learning experience is enhanced by being exposed to numerous “Real Life” case-study videos (made by the instructor himself), in which the skill-set is applied with positive results.
