Strategic Law Enforcement Interviewing Course (SLIC)

SLIC is a 3-day, “hands-on” course focusing on Lena Sisco’s methods for non-accusatory interviewing. Attendees will receive instruction for:

  • Obtaining truthful information, motivations and intent, not just a confession
  • Effectively using advanced questioning techniques and elicitation
  • Creating a safe environment to gain trust and truthful information
  • Effectively using the “Don’t Tell, Ask” practice to avoid giving an interviewee a way out
  • Remaining objective, focused and emotionally controlled
  • Avoiding the misinformation effect and avoiding false confessions
  • Increasing awareness and observation skills;  to accurately read  body language

Accurately detecting and assessing verbal and nonverbal deceptive indicators and identifying behavioral in-congruence.

Being properly prepared and mentally alert are key factors when conducting effective interviews and interrogation and are essential with establishing rapport, use of questioning techniques and recognizing deceptive behavior. More than a series of lectures, attendees will actively participate and engage in numerous activities, to include; analyzing videos, conducting real-world elicitation on strangers, utilizing questioning techniques in classroom exercises, accurately reading body language in others and conducting statement analysis. Participants will gain valuable insight, learn and perfect techniques that may lead someone to the breaking point of telling the truth.
