Carl Maccario, president of The Center of Nonverbal Communication presented a course on Behavior Recognition for Law Enforcement.
The course instructed law enforcement officers on how to recognize, decipher and decode nonverbal behavior indicators that may be associated with criminal or hostile intent. Officers learned interview methods, both field and static, to detect deception and to confirm or dispel these indicators as they relate to criminal or terrorist activity.
