Predictive profiling is a method of threat assessment designed to predict and categorize the potential for criminal and/or terrorist methods of operation based on an observed behavior, information, a situation and/or objects.
Only the operational profile (not racial or statistical) is used as the basis for identifying suspicion indicators.
This method is applicable to securing virtually any environment and to meeting any set of security requirements.
In predictive profiling, one uses only the operational profile (not racial or statistical profile) of a terrorist or criminal as the basis for identifying suspicion indicators in a protected environment.
Students first learn about the nature of the threat itself. They then explore those populations and profiles most likely to be vulnerable to recruitment, or motivated to act. Lastly, students are given tools to identify and assess who can be a potential threat and how to deal with the situation.
