Course Objectives

Detect – Human Behavior Analysis is a method of observing people and accurately predicting what their next course of action will be. Social Science has concluded that human behavior can be quite predictable and it gives the bearer an ability to influence actions and reactions at all levels of public contact. Wouldn't it be beneficial for the officer to know ahead of time if encounters are going to result in malice or harm toward them?  This program teaches the officer to recognize behavior cues that improve their ability to make accurate assumptions about an individual’s thought process, emotional state and plans of action.  It also allows an officer to detect individuals who are being deceptive and assist in locating criminals attempting to hide in crowds. Deter – Human behavior analysis allows an officer to effectively spot dangerous individuals and defuse potential problems before they ever get out of the box. They can also use this information to assist in de-escalating tensions, avoiding potential violent confrontations and maintain stability of volatile situations or hostile scenes. Officers will be able to identify those who consider them as a threat and those who consider them as non-threatening. They will be able to identify the differences between a person who is angry, distraught, mentally disturbed, highly emotional, or whether that person has intentions of malice and harm. Defeat – How much safer and more effective would an officer be if he or she had the ability to know what a person’s intent is before that action takes place? Being able to observe and understand human behavior indicators gives the officer an ability to better control any deteriorating situation and produce a more favorable and nonviolent outcome. This program teaches the officer methods and actions to diffuse hostilities and defend themselves without resulting in conflict or violence.
