False Allegations and Reports

This course is for law enforcement personnel interested in understanding how and why false allegations of crime are often successful.   False allegations are accusations regarding crimes that did not take place; someone has lied.  Complainants and pseudo--victims make false allegations and file false reports beginning with the false 911-call and continue until discovered.  Red flags and investigative indicators are found in case studies that illustrate the examination of false allegations and reports.

Course Topics
  • Explain the psychology of lying
  • Articulate behavioral motivational typologies
  • Define and examine false allegations and reports across manifold crimes
  • Identify theories that explain false allegations and reports

Agency approval required before class. Most agencies request that individual officers contact their training department prior to self-registration.
