Mission

BSG consultations provide insight into relevant behavior, optimizing criminal, counterintelligence and counterterrorism investigations and operations and complimenting other resources such as analytical and technical expertise.  The BSG also provides training in support of the strategic goals, mission requirements and unique assignments of the NCIS personnel. 

In addition, the BSG collaborates with the larger community of law enforcement and intelligence agencies with similarly dedicated missions, providing case consultations, training and briefings regarding behavioral science support to law enforcement and national security.
