Crime & Criminals! Body Language In Crime

Recognize and Read the Body Language of the Guilty

Spot Criminals and Liars reading the Body Language

The professional qualities of any law enforcement officer first of all, is how is he able to determine the true intentions of the criminal, to solve processes, occurring among the convicts, methods of preparing and committing crimes, tactical methods of masking criminal behavior and relationships, to predict the conflict development of events in prisons and unlawful behavior of convicts after release. In the context of this problem, it is also important to note, that in the criminal environment people communicate mainly with gestures. This law enforcement agencies at any level should know as well as recognize the gestures, facial expressions and postures of convicts.

This course is designed to equip law enforcement officers with the knowledge of Criminal Body Language and how they can use this knowledge to read beyond the obvious and determine a subject’s true thoughts and feelings. Without the use of these tools, an interviewer can be tempted to take the interview at face value, resulting in wrongful convictions and the culpable getting off scot-free.

Fortunately, body language cues like gestures, eye movement, body posture and touch are mostly involuntary and there is a science to them which once understood in the context of the situation, simplify the process and result in an officer being able to see through a criminals’ facade. We will explore the basics of body language and unravel the secret body messages of criminals to equip our learners with the basic knowledge to assist them in an interview situation.

We will also seek to equip officers with tools in self-improvement that can help them advance, both in building their personalities and in career development.
