Behavioral Science

Our work focuses on communicating across cultures, countering terrorism, logging decision expertise, and building techniques for effective detection and resolution of suspicious behaviour.

  • Communicating across cultures
    Working with communities across the UK to better understand cultural differences and reduce misunderstandings.
  • Countering terrorism
    Providing better data on which to base suspicions and methods for testing suspicions.
  • Detect, investigate, resolve
    Building techniques for effective detection, investigation and resolution of suspicious behaviour.
  • Logging decision expertise
    Unravelling the "what?" and "how?" of good investigative leadership.
