The SCAN technique was developed by Mr. Avinoam Sapir, a polygraph examiner, with a background in the Israeli Police Department in Jerusalem. Mr. Sapir holds a Bachelors Degree in both Psychology and Criminology, and a Masters Degree in Criminology. He developed the SCAN technique by conducting extensive research into verbal communication, looking into the linguistic behavior used by people in communication.

SCAN is an effictive technique that will help the interviewer to obtain information and detect deception.
SCAN will help the interviewer to find out:
– whether the subject is truthful or deceptive
– what information the subject is concealing
– whether or not the subject was involved in the crime.
This course presents the theory and concepts of the SCAN technique. The students learn the basic rules of SCAN, and the ways that various linguistic signals are observed in statements.
Each student receives a 230-page workbook, plus an additional take-home CD-ROM of SCAN information and case studies (consisting of the LSI SCAN Newsletter Anthology, the VIEW Guidebook, and the SCAN Workshop Guidebook, previously sold separately).
This two-day workshop (open only to students who have attended the Basic Course on SCAN) provides the student with practical experience in applying the SCAN technique to various types of cases. The workshop emphasizes the most relevant points to analyze in each type of case.
