Detecting Deception is a course designed to provide insight and training into the only three ways people can be deceptive:  writing, body language, and any type of verbal statements.  An individual who has training in these areas is far better able to detect when someone is being truthful or deceptive.  The skills learned in this training will not only be able to be applied to cases you are going to be involved in, but it can also be applied to previous cases.  Whether you are a patrol officer or  Homicide Investigator, the skills of Detecting Deception are essential.
