In an ever growing need to establish if a person or persons pose a significant threat, Threat Assessment has been a very useful tool in order to gauge the type of security needed for any given situation. Pentagon Protective and Investigative Services Inc. utilizes a threat assessment approach, developed by the United States Secret Service. This approach is a fact based method of assessment that does not rely on profiles specifically, but focuses on an individual’s patterns of thinking and behavior to determine whether, and to what extent, they are moving toward an attack.
Threat Assessments can be utilized in all facets of security and in investigations. Agents have used this proven method for:
- Stalking Cases
- Hostile Employment Terminations
- Corporate threat letters investigation
- Executive Protection
- Strike Security Management
