Course Objectives
Course Overview:
Course Overview:

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

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

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


The Roadside Diagnostic Phase


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

2. Verbal Clues: 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.

3. Speech Rate: When a subjects 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.

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

5. 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.

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

7. Bargaining Statements: Complaining about themselves is a
form of bargaining. “Soft Words” compliance, “Religious State-
ments” I swear, “Name Dropping” people the subjects know.

8. 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)
