Analyzing 911 Homicide Calls
  • The analysis of 911 calls offers a key for unlocking the truth in homicide cases. The caller is often the killer and the 911 call may be the only statement the offender ever provides to law enforcement.

  • Research reveals patterns in the calls of innocent 911 callers that often differ from the calls of guilty callers. Officers who listen to the 911 call enroute to the death scene arrive armed with insight and investigative leads.

  • 911 callers under stress provide much more information than they intended, especially when questioned by skillful dispatchers. Callers who fabricate events provide vital clues of deception when the fabricated events contrast with the crime scene.

  • The 911 presentation walks officers through the steps of analysis in an interactive setting using tapes of actual 911 homicide calls.
