MN-Behavioral Intelligence is a private investigative agency serving the state of Minnesota. They specialize in human intelligence (HUMINT) gathering and verifying discovery with Behavioral Evidence Analysis. The agency adheres to a strict process. All detective work employs specialized service methods from the discovery process through the final written report of case conclusions:

The Threshold Assessment (TA), reviews the current evidence and weighs the specifics of the case as to what is known and not known of the events gathered from multiple sources. The TA leads the investigative direction with an initial hypothesis of subjects and motivational behaviors. Statement Analysis (SA) method furthers discovery within previously unrecognized content found within documents and transcripts. It is most valuable in the detection of deception within written and audio recorded documents.

Forensic Elicitation Interviewing (FEI) is the face to face method which seeks verification from witnesses and subjects of interest. It is an ethical, legal, and non-coercive fact-finding method to serve four goals: additional fact finding; detection of deception; ruling out the likelihood of a false-positive witness; ruling out the likelihood of a witness affected by a mental impairment or is merely resistive.

Behavioral Evidence Analysis (BEA) will confirm and logically deduce a profile of subject’s relationships and motivation within a given event. This procedure aids in differentiating the four types of ‘mens rea’ and the degree of culpability. More information is available at www.mn-bia.com.

MN-Behavioral Intelligence serves private law firms, public defenders, DA offices and others seeking fact based truth through unbiased discovery. Typical clients come from cases including child custody investigation, employee theft, missing person and criminal defense.
