Course Objectives

Course Objectives:

The Kinesic Roadside Interview Technique® is a multi-phase behavioral analysis system that is used to improve the communications process to conduct more effective and efficient roadside interviews.

This two (2) day course will provide the street/road patrol and drug interdiction officer with the knowledge and understanding from both a verbal/non-verbal and emotional response of subjects of a vehicle stop.

This understanding of the subject will assist the officer conducting the roadside interview in detecting deceptive signals and stress response answers.

The Roadside Diagnostic Phase

Control Of The Interview: The area or distance from which the roadside interview is conducted will solicit various verbal and behavior responses.

Verbal Cues: Identification of symptoms of speech quality and content which gives the officer the clues as to whether statements of the subject(s) are truthful or deceptive when a relevant questioned is asked.

Speech Rate: When a subject's rate of speech speeds up in an area, it indicates that area has already been prepared or rehearsed as a response. The implication is that the subject has anticipated an inquiry into this area and has already prepared the deceptive response.

Vocal Skippers: Deceptive subjects experience more frequent occurrences of speech disturbance. The disturbances occur because the subject is trying to attain or is having difficulty maintaining their thought pattern. (i.e. Stammering, Stuttering, Slurring Words)

Angered Roadside Subject: This subject may verbally attack you and what you stand for or make threatening statements. The deceptive subject will try to attempt to block your interview in this manner.

Subject Denial: Denial is the mood in which the subject re-enforces his commitment to reject his guilt or involvement. The more denial progresses the more difficult the subject is to say "yes". (i.e. Memory Lapses, Denial Expressions, Qualifiers, Stalling Tactics)

Bargaining Statements: Complaining about themselves is a form of bargaining.
"Soft Words"     compliance, "Religious Statements" I swear, "Name Dropping" people the subjects know.

Non-Verbal - Body Language: The key to detecting deceptive behavior is to observe incongruent signals between verbal and non-verbal behavior. Body language is the "Check Register" of moods. (i.e. Head Movement, Sweat, Eye Pupillary Response, Lip Behaviors, Facial Color)

7.  Field interviews are conducted by street/road patrol officers as first responders i.e. domestic disputes, disturbance calls.
8.  Accident interviews by first responder.

9.  More illegal guns are taken off the streets as a result of traffic stops than by any other tactic.
