active engagement

AE is the process that involves engaging individuals while observing their reactions. This may or may not be an indirect engagement, during this process may increase fear and anxiety in individuals who are high-risk. This allows officers to remain mobile and unpredictable while engaging individuals. The purpose of active engagement is to elicit reactions and information from individuals who are experiencing stress, fear or anxiety and to observe those reactions.

This is a eight (8) component certification process that has a concentration in a non-evasive questioning and interviewing process with a nexus to security assessment involving possible criminal activities including terrorism.



Nationwide SAR Initiative (NSI) Training for Law Enforcement and Hometown Security Partners

The NSI training strategy is a multifaceted approach designed to increase the effectiveness of state, local, tribal, and territorial law enforcement and public safety professionals and other frontline partners in identifying, reporting, evaluating, and sharing pre-incident terrorism indicators to prevent acts of terrorism. To increase the effectiveness of this multifaceted approach, the NSI has developed training programs for frontline officers and hometown security partners regarding documented and verified behaviors and indicators that, when viewed in the context of all known facts and circumstances, may indicate terrorism-related criminal activity. Both the SAR Line Officer Training and each sector-specific SAR Hometown Security Partners Training discuss how to report identified suspicious activity to the proper authorities while maintaining the protection of citizens' privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties.



Behavior Threat Detection Courses

 Attendees will learn to observe and identify anomalies in their surrounding environment that may be indicative of terrorist activities, and to conduct behavioral analysis using modern techniques including body language and gestures to assist in identifying whether individuals are showing signs of deception. Though the training was designed by law enforcement, the intended audience is anyone in the public safety community who regularly interacts with the public, including hospital, amusement parks and retail security staff. This will be an excellent training opportunity for anyone who has events coming up, including entertainment venues such as sporting events, concerts, or other public gatherings. 

BTD is completely flexible and can be customized to any organizational need.

counter surveillance training

Almost any criminal act, from a purse-snatching to a terrorist bombing, involves some degree of pre-operational surveillance. In fact, one common denominator of all the different potential threats — whether from lone wolves, militant groups, common criminals or the mentally disturbed — is that those planning an operation all monitor their target in advance. However, while pickpockets or purse-snatchers case their victims for perhaps only a few seconds or minutes, a militant organization might conduct detailed surveillance of a target for several weeks or even months. Regardless of the length of time surveillance is performed, however, the criminal or militant conducting it is exposed, and therefore vulnerable to detection. 
Because of this, counter-surveillance (CS) — the process of detecting and mitigating hostile surveillance — is an important element of counter-terrorism and security operations.


This workshop can be tailored to meet the unique needs of any group. CST can be offered in 1 day (8 hour) basic training or a 3-day (24 hour) advance training sessions.
