Description:
Lt. Jerry Lewis (retired polygraph examiner) New Jersey State Police was one of the first people trained in the United States in Statement Analysis. After analyzing more than 10,000 statements in criminal cases he has become one of this country’s foremost authorities in this unique field. He is consulted by law enforcement agencies throughout the US and Canada to analyze statements taken from suspects, victims, witnesses and informants to determine their truthfulness. He identified the killer of Megan Kanka (Megan’s Law) after being read a statement over the phone.
 
This two-day course will demonstrate how to obtain statements and analyze them to determine their truthfulness. Attendees will learn to spot weak areas and exploit them using the subject’s own words. When used properly this method of analyzing statements is as accurate as the polygraph for determining a person’s truthfulness.
