    Unpacking the Relationship Between Mental Illness and Mass Violence

    Unpacking the Relationship Between Mental Illness and Mass Violence

    Mental illnesses are extremely common; mass violence is not. Despite the fear and public scrutiny, mass shootings are statistically rare events. But it is hard for most people to imagine that a mentally healthy person would deliberately commit an act of mass murder; thus, it is often assumed that the perpetrators of mass violence must be mentally ill. There is a tendency to overuse mental health problems as an explanation for violence, but the relationship is far more complex than typically presented. While there is a modest link between mental illness and violence, there is no basis for a generalized fear of people with mental illness. Having a mental illness does not predispose someone to violence of any type, and certainly not mass violence.
    In our Season Four finale, Steve Crimando of the New Jersey Department of Human Services’ Disaster and Terrorism Branch joins us again to unpack this complicated relationship and offer insights into the programs and resources that address both mental health and mass violence in the State.

    Developing the 21st Century Analyst: Analysis of Competing Hypotheses

    Developing the 21st Century Analyst: Analysis of Competing Hypotheses

    Continuing our discussion of the structured analytic techniques toolbox, we come to Analysis of Competing Hypotheses (ACH), which is an unbiased methodology that identifies a set of hypotheses and systematically evaluates data that is consistent or inconsistent with each hypothesis. ACH is an eight-step procedure grounded in basic insights from cognitive psychology, decision analysis, and the scientific method. The use of ACH compels analysts to set aside preconceptions and look for inconsistencies in the data that may indicate a flaw in their reasoning or deception by the target. It ultimately forces analysts to disprove hypotheses rather than allowing them to jump to conclusions before they properly evaluate the evidence.
    In this episode of the Developing the 21st Century Analyst series, we discuss the steps of ACH and how our office uses this technique in real-world scenarios.

    Developing the 21st Century Analyst: Sources of Information

    Developing the 21st Century Analyst: Sources of Information

    Our previous episode discussed gathering information as a crucial step in the intelligence cycle, allowing analysts to provide actionable intelligence that ultimately improves how an agency performs its public safety responsibilities. There are several different sources of information, and knowing what these are and where to obtain them makes any public safety employee invaluable to their organization. Although there are six basic intelligence sources, or collection disciplines, the continual growth of different data repositories has tremendously increased the amount of information available to research for intelligence.
    In the fourth installment of our Developing the 21st Century Analyst series, we delve deeper into the collection steps of the intelligence cycle by exploring the various resources that can be researched and utilized.

    Developing the 21st Century Analyst: The Intelligence Cycle

    Developing the 21st Century Analyst: The Intelligence Cycle

    The Intelligence Cycle is the process of developing raw information into finished intelligence for policymakers to use when making decisions and taking action. There are hundreds of intelligence cycle models, which all generally include five or six distinct phases: Planning, Collection, Processing, Analyzing, Disseminating, and Feedback. Each organization may take a slightly different approach developing their intelligence model based on their needs and what suits their organization best.

    Join us in the third installment of our Developing the 21st Century Analyst series as we discuss different models of the intelligence cycle and what happens at each step of the process.

    Developing The 21st Century Analyst: Core Competencies And Skills

    Developing The 21st Century Analyst: Core Competencies And Skills

    The growth of intelligence-led approaches to law enforcement and homeland security has placed increasing demands on the knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs) of analysts. Core competencies are the KSAs analysts should have so that their contributions can improve organizational decision-making and how an agency delivers its public safety responsibilities.

    The second installment of our Developing the 21st Century Analyst series explores what these core competencies are and how they enable growth in our mission of public safety and development of individual analysts.
