The Kinesic Roadside Interview Technique® is a multi-phase behavioral
analysis system that is used to improve the communications process to conduct
more effective and efficient roadside interviews.
This two (2) day course will provide the street/road patrol and drug interdiction
officer with the knowledge and understanding from both a verbal/non-verbal
and emotional response of subjects of a vehicle stop.
This understanding of the subject will assist the officer conducting the
roadside interview in detecting deceptive signals and stress response answers.
The Roadside Diagnostic Phase
Control Of The Interview: The area or distance from which the roadside
interview is conducted will solicit various verbal and behavior responses.
Verbal Cues: 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.
Speech Rate: When a subject's 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.
Vocal Skippers: Deceptive subjects experience more frequent occurrences
of speech disturbance. The disturbances occur because the subject is trying
to attain or is having difficulty maintaining their thought pattern. (i.e.
Stammering, Stuttering, Slurring Words)
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.
Subject Denial: Denial is the mood in which the subject re-enforces
his commitment to reject his guilt or involvement. The more denial progresses
the more difficult the subject is to say "yes". (i.e. Memory Lapses, Denial
Expressions, Qualifiers, Stalling Tactics)
Bargaining Statements: Complaining about themselves is a form of bargaining.
"Soft Words" compliance, "Religious Statements" I
swear, "Name Dropping" people the subjects know.
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)
1. DEA officials have estimated that 40 percent of all drug arrests

stops than by any other tactic.
