Tactical Empathy: Getting inside the criminal mind

Tactical Empathy refers to the active intelligence gathering of a professional investigator who is attempting to learn what a person is thinking in an attempt to learn how to generate his/her voluntary compliance, cooperation, and collaboration.

Developing Tactical Empathy not only allows an officer to remain physically safer from a possible assault, but also allows them to potentially control an individual’s behavior through understanding what motivates them.
