Behavioural Science Solutions Group Inc. provides specialized Behavioural Analysis, and Threat Management Strategies. These include:
Indirect Personality Assessments
Indirect Personality Assessments discreetly evaluate information about a person's lifestyle, relationships, occupation, values or emotions. These assessments determine a basic personality type and key motivational factors. They provide valuable insight to help select and plan best investigative and interview techniques and intervention strategies.
Interviewing strategies are selected for a person's unique personality traits and their involvement in a case. Appropriate techniques or approaches are selected to maximize the success of an interview and the overall investigation. We have developed successful interview strategies for reluctant witnesses, problematic victims, persons of interest, suspects and offenders in some of Canada 's most serious investigations. We've successfully developed strategies for people with a variety of mental disorders. Interview support in monitoring important interviews and critical advice about deception, and personality based interview techniques is available.
Statement Analysis detects deception or hidden information by examining a person's word use, sentence content and structure, or changes in speech patterns in written or recorded interviews. Our staff have analyzed countless witness, victim, and suspect and offender statements; and identified people responsible for a variety of crimes. This aids investigators to quickly focus and allocate resources efficiently and effectively. View Questionnaires can be distributed and analyzed in an effort to prioritize the most likely suspect among a group of people.
Analysis of Anonymous or Threatening Documents
Analysis of anonymous or threatening documents provides insight into bizarre, threatening, unusual or inappropriate anonymous communications. Recognizing core personality traits can assist to identifying the author of a document. This provides an understanding of the author's reason for sending the message and their intentions. We have considerable experience in anonymous threats regarding extortion, stalking, and harassment. We have also successfully identified falsely alleged crimes and complaints.
Determining Falsely Alleged Incidents
Determining falsely alleged incidents avoids wasting valuable investigative resources. Hoax complaints can be the basis of false accusations in a variety of settings, such as stalking, sexual assault, workplace problems, or can underlay fraudulent insurance or benefit claims.
Investigative Consulting incorporates behavioural analysis, investigative experience, and consideration of physical and forensic evidence. It assists to develop investigative approaches to efficiently conclude investigations. Crime Scene Analysis, and Crime Scene Reconstruction, determines the sequence of events that occurred and their true significance. Analysis of staged crimes, manner of death determinations, psychological profiles, undercover strategies and evaluation of motive are also available. Our goal is to provide a more organized and comprehensive understanding of the behavioural, personality and motivational characteristics of the people involved in cases under investigation.
Psychological Profiles offer a description of a person's traits in an unsolved case. They assist to generate suspects, and identify and investigate people responsible for a variety of incidents. Our staff has experience in developing profiles that have aided investigations of homicide, sexual assault, arson, extortion, product tampering, criminal harassment, and threatening. In some instances, our profiles have assisted victims to name their aggressors. In another case, using one of our profiles, a homicide victim's sister successfully identified the killer. Profiles are possible in evaluating crime scene behaviour, or anonymous documents.
Threat Assessment is the evaluation of risk factors, inappropriate behaviour, communications or verbal or electronic threats; to determine the level of risk posed by an individual or group. Specially designed case management strategies promote personal and organizational safety. Victim safety plans and contact strategies for threateners reduce the risk of a violent outcome. Examples of situations where threat assessments are regularly used include: stalking, relationship conflicts, workplace conflicts harassment and threats, school threats, threats to medical professionals, politicians celebrities or other public figures and investigators. Threat assessments offer a prediction of what an offender might do, and assists clients to regain control of potentially dangerous situations. In over two thousand incidents where our threat analysts were actively involved, only one person was injured. Ignoring a threat is not an effective strategy.
Training is available on a variety of topics including: detecting deception, personality based interviewing, crime analysis, offender categories, arson, stalking, false allegations, and threat assessment. All training can be customized to your specific needs.
