The Police Dynamics Institute has partnered once again with Justice Clearinghouse and the National Sheriff’s Association to present a series of four Inductive Interview webinars starting in October. This is our first tuition-based webinar series and it promises to be a great way to deliver quality training  without the expenses associated with attending a live seminar.

We have been busy presenting the Inductive Interview System over the summer. We’ve presented to the Florida Polygraph Association, the SC Association of School Resource Officers, and have conducted numerous seminars, including two full certification courses, for the PEAK Credibility Assessment Training Center in Cape Coral, FL.

During one of our recent Justice Clearinghouse webinars, I shared the story of when I was asked to guest-host a local radio talk show on WTMA radio. One of the webinar participants asked me to make a video of the story, so here it is.

One of the callers on the radio show was a father who was struggling with how to reward his kids. He promised his son and his daughter that he would give them each $50 if they made the honor roll. His son made it but his daughter missed it by just a few points. He knew she tried hard and he wanted to reward her for her efforts without lowering his standards. The Character Connection was what he needed. Instead of rewarding his kids for their achievement, he needed to recognize them for their good character.

THE CHARACTER MAXIM:
If you recognize achievement to the exclusion of character,
you inadvertently encourage bad character.

While I was in Colorado to present the Inductive Interview Course for the Ft. Morgan Sheriff’s Office and surrounding agencies, I stopped off at the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs to produce the video.

Course Description

In law enforcement, every contact is an interview. So, it is essential for both investigators and street officers to master the art of interviewing and interrogation. Advances in forensic technology have confirmed that overly coercive interviewing techniques and clever psychological tactics can produce false confessions and cause people to shut down. The Inductive Interview System is proven to produce credible results and reliable confessions.

Easily mastered by any officer, the Inductive Interview System creates an environment conducive to full disclosure of the truth while overcoming a subject’s attempts at deception or suppression. Our unique, “non-linear” approach is significantly different, more reliable, and much more flexible than traditional interviewing systems.

Course Topics:

  • Why People Lie
  • The 6-Step Inductive Interview Process
  • Specialized Questioning Techniques
  • Behavioral “Leakage”
  • Verbal Indicators
  • The Ten Types of Deception
  • Seven Virtues of an Interviewer
  • Managing Denials
  • Induction Techniques
  • Turning an Admission into a Confession
  • Documenting the Confession
  • Divergence Techniques
  • Rationalizations and Minimizations
  • Preventing False Confessions
  • Signs of Surrender

Presented in a fast-paced, dynamic format, the workshop features case studies and videos of actual interviews and confessions to emphasize the training points.

Criminals invade neighborhoods much like pythons have invaded the Florida Everglades.

While on “Python Patrol” in the ‘Glades, I took a few minutes to record this latest Police Dynamics training videos. In this segment from the Dynamic of Strongholds, I use the metaphor of roaches invading a house to illustrate how ineffective traditional law enforcement can be in fighting crime in troubled neighborhoods. Just like roaches rely on a disorderly and dirty environment in which to breed, criminals rely on Fear, Apathy, Tolerance for Crime, and Mistrust of the Police. These environmental elements are best attacked through a coactive trust-based relationships with the community.

 


After last month’s webinar on the E5 Leadership: the Essentials of Ethical Excellence hosted by the Justice Clearinghouse, they took the Q&A session from the end of the webinar and converted it into an online article. To take a look, go here: http://justiceclearinghouse.com/resource/after-the-webinar-e5-leadership-qa-with-ray-nash/

The participants asked these very insightful questions:

  1. How do we hire for character and how could we modify existing hiring practices to accomplish this?

  2. How can you regain trust when you have made a bad decision despite years of making good ones?

  3. How do we justify leniency for a previously “model officer” in light of all public attention on our work?

  4. How do we begin this conversation with the leadership team to clearly set the standards?
