The Saint Paul Police Professional Development Institute (PDI) is sponsoring a 4-day intensive course in COUNTER-TERRORISM TACTICS: BEHAVIOR DETECTION FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT ONLY.

This course is intended for law enforcement officers tasked with performing protective/security functions within their jurisdictions, such as;  schools, event centers, public buildings, federal, state and local government buildings, etc. It will increase one’s understanding and awareness of terrorism as a tactic.  This course will enable a LE Officer to detect behavior that indicates potential immediate or not immediate intention to execute a terrorist attack. Most importantly this training will give participants an effective tool to prevent an attack, thus enhancing agencies’ proactive capabilities.

This course will significantly increase the student’s awareness and understanding of the terrorism threat and terrorist methods of operations. Furthermore, this program will enable participants to understand, retain and be proficient in Behavior Detection and Security Interviewing techniques.  Both techniques have been widely and successfully used by Israeli security apparatus to thwart acts of terrorism.  

Participants will engage in class lectures, workshops and a number of field exercises.  In addition, participants will learn how to identify real and fraudulent forms of identification and how to utilize a number of different ID forms in Security Interviews.  At the end of the course participants will receive suggested Standard Operations Protocol for dealing with Suspicious People, Items and Vehicles.  The following training modules will be covered:

  1. Terrorism Threat Awareness
  2. Aggressors’ Methods of Operation (AMO) & Potential Methods of Action (PMA)
  3. Behavior Detection
  4. Security Interviewing
  5. High-Stakes Deception Detection
  6. Identity Analysis (IDA)
  7. Threat Mitigation Procedures
