One of the most important tools used by Police Detectives during the interrogation of suspects is observation. Many techniques can be used to assist in detecting deception during questioning. Police Detectives can utilize many techniques and strategies, but today, we will discuss eye movement. Non-verbal communication can often be a valuable tool when confronted with a uncooperative suspect. It would be foolish to base an arrest on the fact that the suspect looked in a certain direction when asked certain questions, but nonetheless, theories and strategies have been in place for years concerning eye movement and lying.

Its been often said that a suspects' eye movement can quickly detect deception. This information is solely based on scientific experiments conducted through the years, and factors that aid in detecting deception. Eye movement is contingent upon which side of the brain the thought process will be initiated. As a guide, we will assume that you are facing your suspect (from your viewpoint, looking at the culprit). Eye movement has been identified in six major groups:

GROUP-1...Visually Constructed (VC)...Up and to the Left
If you ask someone to imagine a pink buffalo, chances are that they will look up and to the left as they visually construct a pink buffalo in their mind.

GROUP-2...Visually Remembered (VR)...Up and to the Right
If you ask someone what color was the first house they lived in, theory shows that they will tend to look up and to the right while thinking about the question.

GROUP-3...Auditory Constructed (AC)...To the Left
If you ask someone to try to create the highest pitch sound in their head, scientific theory shows that their eyes will move to the left while attempting to reconstruct the sound in their head.

GROUP-4...Auditory Remembered (AR)...To the Right
If you ask someone to remember what their mothers' voice sounds like, they will tend to look to the right while trying to remember their mothers' voice tone.

GROUP-5...Feeling (F)...Down and to the left
If you asked someone if they can remember the campfire smell, you should notice that their eyes will move down and to the left as they make attempts to recall the smell, feeling or taste.

GROUP-6...Internal Dialog (AI)...Down and to the Right
Without asking anyone a question, you may observe the individual constantly looking down and to the right, well as a theory, this is an indication that someone is talking to themselves

My professional career experience has been in the field of Law Enforcement, as I have served as a police officer for twenty-three years...14-plus years as a Criminal Investigator. My ultimate goal is to provide information to the general public in the form of my recently published books.
