Training Law Enforcement Officers to Identify Reliable Deception Cues With a Serious Digital Game

Existing research indicates that  professional law enforcement officers are generally no better than untrained novices at detecting deception. Moreover, traditional training methods are often less effective than no training at all at improving successful detection.

University of Florida College of Journalism and Communications Telecommunication Assistant Professor Yu-Hao Lee discusses his research on how digital games can help law enforcement officers better detect deception. Click on the image above to hear Lee discuss his study.

Lee is interviewed by UFCJC doctoral student Brett Ball. 

The original study,  “Training Law Enforcement Officers to Identify Reliable Deception Cues With a Serious Digital Game,” appeared in the International Journal of Game-Based Learning.
