Human Behavior/Predictive Threat Analysis (HB/PTA): A program that instills a proactive mindset to observe patterns in human behavior indicative of an impending threat.
Originally formulated for the military, The HB/TPA program is a training like no other for law enforcement, security, or any other department dealing with potential threats. The HB/PTA was created by subject matter experts within the field of law enforcement and the military to instill a proactive mindset in today’s diverse culture to observe patterns in human behavior predicting impending threats.
The program was created after reviewing hundreds of real world after action reviews, the I2s team identified a recurring trend that the observation training was not only successful in operational environments or in daily life. These findings lead to the creation of the current HB/PTA program.
The I2s founding members have served in law enforcement, corrections, and the military drawing upon that experience to create the Human Behavior /Predictive Threat Analysis (HB/PTA) program. During their time spent working in the field they recognized the need for human behavior observation in many environments. The HB/PTA program gives students the ability to quickly categorize the behaviors they are observing and make an accurate prediction to the outcome of the observed behavior using a heuristic problem solving strategy.
The heuristic technique is an approach to problem solving, learning, and/or discovery that utilizes a practical methodology not guaranteed to be optimal or perfect but sufficient for immediate goals.
There will always be pre-event indicators to threats or violence, whether you are on a street corner, battlefield, the board room, daily work place, or out in the community. Many organizations respond to an incident after it has happened, but we all know it would be better to proactively prevent the threat or violence before it occurs. The HB/PTA program was created and proven to be best practice and can be replicated in multiple environments. The HB/PTA program equips your organization and staff with the ability to collect information that people unconsciously offer up day-to-day but is rarely recognized or categorized for it’s true meaning.
