Human Intelligence - or "HUMINT" (/HYOO - mint/) - is a term of art within the law enforcement and military intelligence communities for relevant information or evidence collected from the words and actions of people. HUMINT collection techniques encompass a number of methodologies, including: interviews and interrogation, document exploitation, surveillance, behavioral analysis, threat assessment, and other techniques for documenting, coding, and assessing discrete behaviors or communications.

The Human Intelligence Group ("HUMINT Group") takes its agents' expertise in the full spectrum of HUMINT techniques and uses that expertise to offer cutting edge training curricula, as well as to provide consulting expertise and expert testimony for a number of domains related to the human intelligence paradigm. This includes particular expertise in active shooter prevention and response, workplace violence prevention, threat assessment, crime prevention, interviews and interrogation, intelligence analysis, and field tactics.
