Interview and Interrogation for Drug Investigations

This course is restricted to US military and sworn law enforcement personnel.

Course Description

Many organizations manufacturing and distributing illicit narcotics within the United States are specially trained to evade and deceive law enforcement officers when questioned. Gathering information from the lowest level dealer and then turning the information into action is the most effective means of infiltrating higher levels of drug networks and is successful in curbing the flow of drugs. Gathering accurate and predictive information through interviews and interrogations increases the success rates of identifying new targets and prosecution.

This course is designed to enable federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement professionals to enhance their ability to gain information and determine the truth about illicit narcotics activity through the interview and interrogation process. It teaches specialized skills that enable detection of deception through non-verbal and verbal communication with both theory and practical application.

Topics Included

  • Personality typology theme development
  • Competitive examination (exercise)
  • Gathering data
  • Detecting deception
  • Systematic interviewing
  • The interrogation process
  • Formulation and types of questions
  • Body language for the interrogator
  • Effective use of territory and zones

Course Length

Interview and Interrogation for Drug Investigations is a 5-day (40 hour) course.

Lessons Learned: Off Duty Deadly Encounters

Officers must be prepared to respond to lethal threats at all times.  What happens when you suddenly find yourself off-duty, faced with a lethal threat?  Training dictates how you should, and hopefully will respond. We will discuss events leading up to the encounter at the Lenexa, KS Costco, the response, and the resulting investigation process. The presentation will focus on a walk through time both with video and audio involving lessons learned, investigational skills observed, as well as how multiple agencies work toward a common goal.
