The U.S. Code of Federal Regulation defines terrorism as "the unlawful use of force and violence against person of property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives". (28 C.F.R. Section 0.85)
In today's world there are limited or no prior intelligence on the next lone actors, active killer or suicide bomber of when, where and how an attack will happen. The federal government as great as it is does not have the resource to protect us from all threats foreign or domestic.
Every terrorist attack or active killer incident starts and ends with a person from pre-operational activities to operational deployment.
Here at TACT Consulting LLC. We specialize in Deviant Behavioral Profiling and Detection, also known as Offender Profiling or Criminal Profiling, This is an investigative tool used by law enforcement agencies to identify likely suspects and analyze deviant behavioral patterns that may predict deceptive behavior through social norms or criminal activities such as acts of terrorism or active killer situations.

Behavior Threat Detection (BTD) Programs
The BTD program utilizes non-invasive behavior detection techniques based on scientifically validated behaviors to identify individuals who potentially pose a threat to or nations society, infrastructures and ultimately or way of life. These individuals are deemed potentially higher risk and subjected to additional scrutiny.
The BTD program identifies potentially high risk individuals exhibiting behaviors indicative of excessive stress, fear or deception and engages the them by looking for a combination of individual indicators that warrant further scrutiny or interaction.
BTD officers are trained to identify behavior cues that have been shown through research, science, and decades of domestic and international law enforcement experience to be reliable indicators and predictors of anomalous or suspicious behavior. BTD trained officers engage in conversation with individuals displaying anomalous behaviors, looking at possible verbal cues indicative of a high risk individuals and refer those individuals exhibiting such behavior for additional questioning or law-enforcement involvement.

Behavior Threat Detection: BTD Training
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. Contact us for GSA or Group Rates.

Covert 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 actor, 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, covert-surveillance — the process of detecting and mitigating hostile surveillance or pre-attack behaviors — 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 that also consist of covert plain clothes operations.
