Optimize Law Enforcement Resources with an Operational Psychologist Partnership

Behavioral and psychological factors are inherent in threats of targeted violence. Law enforcement officers must account for how the subject’s behavior and intent will affect the threat management strategy. Our experts partner with you to translate the subject’s behavior and communications into an operationally useful threat management strategy.

The Operational Psychologist & Law Enforcement Partnership

The partnership between law enforcement officers and operational psychologists is a valuable relationship to leverage in threat assessment investigations. The psychologist provides ongoing case consultation as the investigation progresses, but the investigator remains in control of the case management decisions. The resulting team functions efficiently to maximize resources, with the investigator collecting information and the psychologist assessing the subject’s mindset, motivation, behavior, and intent. Equipped with the threat assessment, the team collaborates to develop the most effective the threat management strategy.
