What do psychics say about working with police? (Part III - Pam Coronado & Lyn Buchanan)
Pam Coronado has gaining increasing recognition for her work as an intuitive
detective, and was one of the recent stars of the show Sensing Murder
main website is at www.pamcoronado.com
and she had some interesting, but different, things to say:
The most important thing I tell intuitives is not to approach law enforcement involved in a high profile
case. The FBI agent I work with received literally thousands of tips
from psychics on the Chandra Levy case. It's overwhelming for them and
they can't even begin to sort it all out.
- If you are serious about
working with the police, approach them and offer to demonstrate your
skills by working on a closed case (as I did on Proof Positive, episode
#106). Once you prove yourself, they will be more willing to work with
you on cases they don't know the answers to.
- Earn their trust. The
minute I get involved in a case officially, I am bound to
- Keep in mind that police work is not for all intuitives. You have to
learn to keep your distance emotionally and that can be tough for a
Lyn Buchanan is a controlled remote viewer whose main website is at
. He had a very practical set
of comments, which are listed below:
Gone are the days when you had to be weird to
be psychic. Gone are the days when people were dazzled by mysticism and
strange jargon. You are a business person. Act like it, and look like
it! They can be quick to label you. They want a quiet,
professional manner. If you're at all ditzy, they'll write you off.
- Cops are notorious about not being able to communicate with anyone.
- Start the relationship with a clear explanation of what will or won't be done.
- Don't promise anything you'll have to explain or apologize for later.
- You have to meet to the standards of professionalism held by other fields.
Professionalism is more important than presence. Be professional in appearance,
terminology, conduct, and product.
- Talk in language they understand. Use their terms for things.
- Don't make them feel you're going to make them look like an idiot.
- Understand their needs and routines. Be a team player. Remember that you
are a tool for them. You are there to be an asset.
Show an interest in learning and understanding what they need done.
- Don't have flowers, doves, dolphins, or esoteric symbols on your stationary or
reports to them. Learn what format they prefer for receiving information and
use that format in your reports. Cops often like an anonymous
tip sheet or eyewitness report. Alternatively, a formal report with a
business-like cover page looks good and can score you points. State your
findings in clear terms (preferably their terminology). Give a non-mystical
explanation of who you are and what you do (i.e. advertise) and include a glossary
of any special terms.
- Offer to explain anything you have provided to anyone who asks them questions
(i.e. you'll back them up).
- Suggest how you can be of further assistance and be sure they have your contact
information (a nice, professional business card and/or brochure is a good idea).
- Never work for the family of a missing child. Deal only with law
- Always maintain confidentiality.
