About the program
Studies show that while terrorism perpetrators have different motives and different modus operandi, they share one key element: intent. Therefore, the highest probability for detecting a planned terrorist attack is to identify the intent. The Suspicious Indicators Recognition and Assessment (SIRA) system is a behavioral detection and interviewing program founded on methods developed by the Israeli Security Agency. Now used in the U.S., the system focuses on identifying both a perpetrator’s intent and potential weaponry, which greatly enhances the ability of security and law enforcement agencies to prevent violent attacks. Become familiar with the system and learn how to use it to identify high-risk individuals.
