Behavioral Threat Assessment Integration
The National Threat Evaluation and Reporting (NTER) Office's Behavioral Threat Assessment Integration (BTAI) line of effort assists Federal, State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial (F/SLTT) homeland security partners with integrating a Behavioral Approach to Violence Prevention into their processes for identifying and mitigating homeland security threats of targeted violence , regardless of motive.
The cornerstone of the BTAI line of effort is the Master Trainer Program, a train-the-trainer initiative that certifies F/SLTT partners in the instruction of Behavioral Threat Assessment and Management techniques and best practices.
NTER also provides Certified Master Trainers and eligible homeland security partners with access to training opportunities, information sharing resources, and program support.
The BTAI Line of Effort is meant for awareness and educational purposes only.
Investigating, assessing, and managing threats or observable behaviors that may concern others requires additional specialized training and processes.
Some observable behaviors may be legally protected, and on their own are not necessarily indicative of a threat of targeted violence. Please report any threats or observable behaviors that may concern others through the appropriate reporting channels.
