Profiling and risk assessment for law enforcement and border control officers at aviation checkpoints was the focus of an OSCE-organized practical training course that is taking place from 1 to 5 July 2019.
Led by a team of experts from Kazakhstan, the five-day training course focuses on psychological and behavioural analysis techniques and risk indicators.
The training event is attended by operational level officers from the Ministries of National Security, Internal Affairs, the State Border Service, the State Customs Service, the State Migration Service and the Aviation Security Service of Turkmenistan Airlines. The course addresses profiling history, relevant risk analysis and risk management system and discusses how to develop a risk profile and survey methodology.
The agenda of the training course includes theoretical and practical classes on topics such as speech analysis, face control, psychological and physiological markers of stress as well as operational psycho-diagnostics and factors complicating or affecting profiling. A practical exercise at the aviation checkpoint will enable participants to test their newly gained knowledge and skills.
