AEGIX Global seeks to transform interrogation training
AEGIX Global, LLC, which develops and delivers mission-specific resources, technology, equipment and training to law enforcement, has announced its official company launch.
AEGIX also introduced one of its flagship offerings, Rapport-Based Intelligence Collection (R-BIC), which is “research-based, science-backed and field-tested interrogation and interview training.”
R-BIC was developed via a partnership of scientists and intelligence professionals to more effectively enable law enforcement and military/intelligence professionals to obtain valid, actionable information, according to the company.
“Police and federal agents are required to complete regular weapons training, practice and certifications; but there has been no inclusive training counterpart for interviewing or communicating—even though they communicate far more than they use their weapons,” said Chet Linton, CEO of AEGIX. “Law enforcement has been quick to bring science such as forensics and DNA analysis into its investigations. AEGIX is empowering them to finally bring science into their interrogations, conversations and interviews. R-BIC is applicable for all strata of law enforcement from beat cops and detectives working local investigations to federal and intelligence agents working sensitive and critical cases.”
R-BIC is based on data derived from the U.S. High-Value Detainee Interrogation Group (HIG), a multi-agency intelligence group established in 2009 to conduct strategic intelligence interviews worldwide and to sponsor research on how to improve interview techniques.
R-BIC training courses include:
- Core Interview Skills
- Decision-Making & Planning
- Strategic Interviewing
- Rapport Building
- Cognitive Interview
- Dealing with Resistance
- Detecting Deception
- Leadership Communication Skills
- Working Effectively with Informants
R-BIC also “helps law enforcement officers and agents move from a fear-based relationship with the public to more of a trust-based relationship.”
AEGIX is headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah.
