For years officers have been collecting Witness, Victim and Suspect statements, as a matter of routine, and often fail to recognize the importance of what the writer is really conveying or purposely omitting. Through the Statement Analysis process, officers and investigators can gain insight that will prove invaluable in the interview/interrogation phase of the investigation. By analyzing the deliberate words people use, paying attention to the balance of the statement, the strength of their insinuations and a number of other critical factors, the Statement Analysis process will guide our investigators through a deliberate course of questioning. Statement Analysis will change the way our officers and investigators process criminal investigations and will unquestionably lead to a higher clearance and solve rate.
