I attended the 8-hour training seminar in analysis and micro expression presented at the annual training conference PAWLI holds every year. Bruce put on one of the most interesting and best training courses I have taken in my 40+ years as a law enforcement officer and as a private investigator. From the start of Bruce's presentation until the end I was intrigued with the information he spoke about, as well as seeing numerous videos of individuals involved in high profile criminal cases and others interviews showing the deceptive behavior that he was teaching us. I wish this type of training was available years ago to me. I highly recommend his seminars if you truly want to expand your knowledge in truth analysis.

I attended an 8-hour training seminar on statement analysis and micro-expressions presented by Bruce Jacobs of Leaking the Truth. It was outstanding training packed with information which left me wanting more. Bruce is a dynamic speaker who obviously enjoys presenting and captivated everyone in attendance. I had been skeptical initially thinking that his provided bio suggested that his experience may be somewhat limited and by extension his knowledge may also be limited; I was wrong!
This training is suitable for anyone who needs to evaluate the truthfulness of the written and spoken word. It is among the best training I have attended in my 30 years of LE and my dozen years of PI experience. It is also notable because it can be used immediately while the student continues to hone his skills. It is quite rare and valuable in that vein. Bruce seems to have used every ounce of his experience to distill a meaningful and comprehensive presentation which draws the student into the intriguing arena of truth analysis.

"Bruce's speech was THE BEST educational seminar presentation that I've ever seen at any conference (and I go to A LOT) in my 26-year professional investigation career.
His speech is well thought out & well presented, and his video & visual exhibits are well produced & well organized. Bruce's speaker style is casual and free flowing and
the subject matter is so interesting & entertaining that his passion for spreading this valuable knowledge to others in the investigation profession is clearly evident."

“Most law enforcement officers or agents are good at reading people who are trying to deceive them. However Bruce’s expertise on recognizing deceptive behavior
using scientific based behavioral analysis and statement analysis takes you to the next level. This class is designed for anyone who wants to improve their deception recognition skills and how to see the true emotion people are feeling. They may say one thing but there body is saying something different. The interviewing section trains to ask questions which provoke an emotional response which causes leakage, then to properly respond to people who are being untruthful.”
Bruce presented at the 2018 Crime Prevention Practitioners Association conference and received great reviews after only a 3 hour presentation. The Officers were excited about the presentation, stated "they wanted more" and requested that a full day class be offered.

"Good content, excellent presentation. Wish I would have had these tools years ago on the police dept. I'll never conduct or watch an interview in the same way again."
